Our Volunteers Light Up the Night.

 Every year, Northern Spark relies on hundreds of volunteers to make the festival a success.

Whether it’s your first time attending Northern Spark or a favorite summer tradition, volunteering for one night plugs you into a community that lasts year-round. Volunteers help out in 3-hour shifts, which means that you don’t have to miss out on the festival to help make it happen!

 What are the Perks of Volunteering?

  • Feel good, doing good — Help make Northern Spark 2017 a success. We couldn’t do it without you!
  • New Friends — Connect with other great folks who love the Twin Cities and the arts.
  • Old Friends — We happily accept groups of friends and co-workers.
  • Free T-Shirt — Be Northern Spark fashionable year-round.
  • Free Drinks— Receive invitations to exclusive volunteer happy hours and events with artists and staff.
  • Unforgettable Fun!

“This was my first time volunteering for Northern Spark. Though I have been before, appreciating it from the opposite side was much more fun! Everything was so organized and detailed. It made it much easier for me. I really enjoyed meeting and talking with the visitors about their different views on a specific artwork. This event always brings people together to experience something amazing! As a volunteer, I loved every single moment of it. I talked about it with friends and families for days. Thank you for the experience.”
