2017 Milwaukee Irish Fest Volunteer Information

Past Volunteers

Your area coordinator will contact you to confirm your commitment and shift assignment in early summer. You do not need to fill out a volunteer sign-up application unless you wish to change areas. Know someone else who might be interested in volunteering with us? Encourage them to sign up on our website no later than August 10!

Volunteer Passes

By early August, volunteers will receive by mail: Thursday night festival preview passes, an entrance pass and a discounted parking pass. If you have concerns regarding these, notify your area coordinator or send us an e-mail at


We understand that some volunteers may need to cancel their commitment to our festival. If this is the case, please notify your area coordinator or send us an e-mail at as soon as possible.


Discounted volunteer parking is located in LOT P. Enter off the extension of Harbor Drive south of the South Gate. Present your discounted parking pass and $5 to the parking attendant upon arrival.

Gate 6 Entrance

Gate 6, located off Harbor Drive south of the Main Entrance, is where most volunteers enter the festival grounds. Volunteers who must report before the festival opens must enter through this gate.

Will Call

Volunteers who need to receive passes after the mail date may arrange to pick them up at Will Call, located during the day in a small tent at the Gate 6 entrance on Harbor Drive. At night this tent moves to the Gate 6 turnstile area.

Personal Information Updates

If your home address, e-mail or phone number has changed since last year’s festival, notify your area coordinator or send us an e-mail at
