Volunteer for the Festival
Want to join us in sharing the great places and spaces of Providence? Be a part of the Doors Open RI community by volunteering in our inaugural citywide festival!
What Volunteers Do
Volunteers welcome visitors at the sites, manage the crowd, track visitor attendance and answer questions. A typical shift is 4 hours long.
Why You Should Volunteer
Volunteers receive a priority-access pass to skip the lines, and a festival souvenir T-shirt. Most importantly, you are helping us connect the public to the great places and spaces of Providence.
