Volunteer for Portland VegFest

Did you know that we need more than 400 volunteers to make Portland VegFest happen? See below to learn how you can lend a hand in the planning and implementation of Portland VegFest! We can't do it without you!

Spread the Word

Want to have fun, talk to people, and wear a veggie costume? We need volunteers to hand out VegFest postcards and posters prior to VegFest to help get the word out. You will be handing out postcards and posters in places such as Pioneer Square, farmers markets, local businesses, Alberta Street, Hawthorne District, Mississippi Street, and Belmont. If you’re interested in volunteering or learning more contact our Volunteer Coordinator!
