Volunteer at Streets Alive! Outdoors
Streets Alive is a great opportunity to give back to your community - besides, it's fun! Sign up on your own or bond as a group with friends, family, co-workers, or church members. Whether you'd like to sign up for an hour or for the day, you'll have great time. All event volunteers will receive a free t-shirt to wear the day of the event. The Streets Alive! has been an outdoor festival nine out of the last 10 years. Our 2020 Streets Alive! event moved online to protect community health, but returned to an outdoor event in 2021. The 2022 Streets Alive! festival was September 25, hosted by the University Place neighborhood. The date for the 2023 event will be announced in 2023 and again be hosted in the University Place neighborhood. Volunteer applications will be open in the summer of 2023.

So much to do before the event! Help set up tables, chairs, information booths and stages. Assist with placement of signage. Moderate lifting will be involved.
Assist exhibitors in finding their tables and getting set up. You may be asked to move barricades to allow access to the route for set-up and/or assist in carrying exhibitor materials to their tables. (within 1 block)
Monitor pedestrian safety at crosswalks, and child safety at the bounce houses
Be the hot spot at one of our 5 information booths to assist exhibitors, entertainers, and participants in finding their way. You'll also be an access point for anyone to reach one of the event producers if needed.
Check in with information booths & exhibitors along the route to determine needs. You may be asked to distribute water, materials, etc. You will need a bike and helmet. A bike trailer may be helpful to carry materials, but is not required.
Post pictures and comments from the day. Chat, tweet, post and click away!
That's a wrap! Help take down information booths, load up tables and chairs, pull signs, and pick up any trash left from the event.
