Over 2,000 volunteers are needed to host the Morton Pumpkin Festival!  Volunteer groups from local businesses and organizations fill many of our food venue shifts.  Groups also sign up to run festival events, wash dishes, collect garbage, and serve in the many roles needed to have a safe and well-organized festival.

Individuals and families are also encouraged to join the fun by becoming a Morton Pumpkin Festival Volunteer.  In addition to offering an exciting volunteer experience, we offer each Volunteer who helps out at one of our food venues Pumpkin Bucks as a token of our thanks.  Pumpkin Bucks can be redeemed at any of our Chamber of Commerce Food Venues including the Pumpkin Grille, Pumpkin Sweet Shop, Pumpkin Sweet Shop Express, and the Pumpkin To Go.

Volunteers must be 12 years or older.  Children ages 8-11 may volunteer with an adult supervisor.
