Christkindlmarkt Volunteer Opportunities
Tis the season…for volunteering!
That’s right: Christkindlmarkt is back in the Christmas City for another festive year. We’ve previously been recognized by Travel + Leisure as one of the best Christmas markets in the nation and it’s all due to the spirit and effort of our amazing volunteers. Many of our favorite vendors are returning to ply their wares and there are sure to be new ones as well. If you are someone who loves the holiday season and interacting with visitors from out of town, this is your time to shine like the Bethlehem star!
Our biggest opportunities are the entrances where you can scan tickets as Front of House, sell tickets as an Admissions Assistant, or stamp hands as guests move in and out of the Visitor Center. You can also work with kids as a Craft Assistant or work side-by-side with the big man himself as a St. Nick’s helper.
If crowd work isn’t your thing, we have plenty of other chances to spark some yuletide cheer. We always need help on Eco Squad, where you’ll help keep Christkindlmarkt clean—which will be even more interesting this year with a changed outdoor experience in the PNC Plaza. As a Booth Sitter, you can get to know our crafters personally as you check in and see if they a break. And don’t forget our Shuttle Drivers, who transport their fellow volunteers, ArtsQuest Members & vendors from the satellite parking lot to the festival. In addition, help in set up and tear down is always needed to make the festival ready for all of our guests!
Christkindlmarkt has been consistently setting records since the year it started. Come be apart of the holiday cheer and help us usher in this amazing time of year as an ArtsQuest volunteer! Sign up in the portal today!
