French Quarter Festivals, Inc. is a non-profit organization.  We continue to offer free programming through the continued support of our wonderful team of volunteers. 

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, have fun and support a great cause.  Volunteers are an essential part of our Festivals.


Do you live in town and enjoy the festival?  Come and volunteer to be a part of the excitement. 

Are you from out of town?  We would love to have your help and you can learn more about our great city!

Do you and a group of friends want to get together and help out?  Does your office or club want a teambuilding opportunity?  We love volunteer groups!  You can all work together and have a blast.

If you would like to bring a group to volunteer, please be sure to sign up each member of your team indicating the name of your group leader. Group slots fill quickly, so the earlier the better!  Remember - all members of the group must successfully complete an online registration to participate as a volunteer.
