We are excited to announce brand new year-round volunteer opportunities here at Minnesota Fringe! Register below to see what's coming up.
When you join Fringe as a volunteer, you put yourself at the heart of what makes this festival tick. You’ll gain valuable experiences, practice new skills, make tons of friends, and contribute to making our festival one of the best in the world. In addition to our undying gratitude, Festival volunteers get their own swanky t-shirt, and have the opportunity to earn comps to see shows for free.
Each year during our summer programming, more than 300 volunteers step up to cover over 3,000 volunteer shifts (that’s over 4,200 hours!). These volunteers ensure performances run on schedule while keeping our patrons happy. Yeah, it’s pretty incredible. Simply put, we couldn’t do what we do without volunteers.
Once you've registered this year, click here for easy access to your volunteer portal.
Together is better — and volunteering at Fringe is no exception. If you are looking to sign up your group of friends, artists, neighbors, co-workers, or book club members for a day of volunteering together, just email Volunteer Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
