Our Volunteers Light Up the Night.

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

Shifts are a short two to three hours, which means that you don’t have to miss out on the festival to help make it happen! Whether it’s your first time attending Northern Spark or a favorite summer tradition, volunteering with Northern Spark plugs you into a community that lasts year-round.

What are the Perks of Volunteering?

“… 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.”
