Volunteer at LaughFest 2020

Volunteer Opportunities

In 2011, people thought that we were seriously crazy when we said we wanted to put on a 10-day festival of laughter. Now going into our eleventh festival, LaughFest is wildly successful, garnering praise from artists and attendees alike. How does Gilda’s LaughFest manage to put on so many diverse events at multiple venues during the course of the festival? ONLY WITH LOTS OF VOLUNTEERS!

Our volunteers are not only part of what makes LaughFest so great, they make it possible. When volunteering for LaughFest, you are instrumental in creating a fantastic festival experience for all. We have opportunities to volunteer before, during and after the festival. There are no minimum or maximum time commitments when volunteering. Whether you choose to volunteer a little or a lot, know you will be bringing smiles and laughter to the lives of many…all while helping support the year-round work happening at Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids!
