People Making the Difference

The Jubilee is always looking for people to help out!

We can use people in many areas, here are some examples:

Set Up

It takes nearly 36 hours to set up for the Jubilee. Equipment is put in place, fences are erected, vendors are set up, and the event location is made ready for the balloons and the public. As you can imagine this takes quite a bit of manpower.


The Jubilee utilizes over a hundred volunteers over the course of the weekend. We do our best to make sure that those volunteers are well taken care of. The Hospitality team cooks meals, delivers water, and in general takes care of the volunteers.


We are going to need this more now than ever. The move back to the park means two things: First we expect larger crowds. Secondly, our we will be parking cars in several different areas. We need people who are willing to help direct traffic and help people park.

Information Booth

This is a new thing we are starting this year. We want to have a manned booth throughout the event where people can get their questions answered. Where can I find Laura the elephant? What times are the launches? How many calories are in an elephant ear? OK, so maybe we won’t have all of the answers, but we’re hoping to help with most of them.

Use the form below to let us know that you are interested in helping. A representative from the Jubilee will be in contact with you shortly.
