Lend a hand and join the fun
Opportunities of all kinds
Want to explore your Italian ancestry? Love to play Bocce? Do you wish to be up close and personal with famous chefs? Festa Italiana has just the opportunity for you!
Each year, during the last week of September, our wonderful Festa is celebrated and enjoyed by thousands of people like yourself.
Not surprisingly, hundreds of volunteers work for months to bring this celebration together. Planning this event begins early in the Spring with dedicated volunteers and event chairs. Our general planning meetings are open to all interested and are entertaining by themselves. Come meet great people with a passion for “All Things Italian”…share a glass of wine and ideas.
Volunteers are a vital part of Festa Italiana. Without your help, there would be no festival.
Plenty of volunteers are needed in many areas
Have a spare hour? Come cook Italian sausages, help clean tables, work in the souvenir booth or welcome guests to Foto Italiana.
Have lots of spare hours? We can find an activity for you to chair!
All volunteers will receive an invitation to the Volunteer appreciation dinner in November and the thanks of the community.
Every year, we hold an annual volunteer meeting in September. This is where we meet new volunteers, encourage volunteers to sign up for specific activities, talk about any changes for that year, and pass out volunteer T-Shirts. Anyone and everyone is invited. These meetings are held in the school hall at:
St. Patrick’s Church,
2702 Broadway East,
Seattle, WA 98102
(at the intersection of I-5 and SR 520)
