Special Events Volunteer

If you want to volunteer but don’t have time to commit on a regular basis, we have plenty of one-time opportunities for you.

2020 Opportunities at York Street

Glow at the Gardens 
Oct. 19-23 
Glow at the Gardens is a luminous, nighttime celebration of America's favorite gourd. The Gardens dresses up for Halloween with luminaria-lined pathways, spooky lighting displays and hundreds of carved, glowing pumpkins. Volunteers assist throughout October with event prep, pumpkin carving, setup of festive decorations or during the event with themed activities.

Blossoms of Light
Nightly: Nov. 27 – Jan. 3
This family-favorite holiday tradition transforms the Gardens into a winter wonderland with glittering lights. Volunteers help guests check-in and provide wayfinding.
