Northern Spark relies on our volunteers to make the festival a success each year!
Whether it’s your first time attending Northern Spark or a favorite summer tradition, volunteering with Northern Spark plugs you into a community that lasts year-round.

“… This event always brings people together to experience something amazing! As a volunteer, I loved every single moment of it. I talked about it with friends and families for days.”
– Razi, Northern Spark 2016 volunteer

Groups Welcome!

Whether it’s a social club, some friendly inter-office competition, part of corporate philanthropy, or team building – volunteering with Northern Spark is a great way to give back to the community! Groups of four or more play a special role in making the festival happen, and come with nifty perks for your organization!
