Volunteer Participation

Thank you for your decision to volunteer at Rotary GroveFest! We are very happy to be bringing this festival back to Downtown Downers Grove. However, without the help of volunteers like you, we would not be able to hold this event.

We are again using Sign Up Genius to handle the registration process. The site allows you to see all the shifts available, sign up for what you want, and go back and make changes should your schedule change.
