Volunteer Opportunities

Greater Kansas City Japan Festival 2023

Oct 7, 2023 8:00 am - 7:00 PM

[Volunteer sign ups will close at 11:59pm on Wednesday, October 4th]

Each year the festival needs hundreds of volunteers to help put on our annual Japan Festival. Your service helps to showcase Japanese culture here in the Kansas City area as well as a great way to meet people who share your love of all things Japanese!

In exchange for free entry to the festival (a $20 value), we require:

  • you sign up for at least one volunteer shift ( most shifts are around 3 hours) 
  • attend a short, online Zoom training meeting to go over basic volunteer essentials either Sunday, Oct 1 or Monday Oct 2 (link will be sent to the email you sign up with)
  • volunteers under 16 years old must sign up with an adult

Use the links below to review the open volunteer opportunities and available shifts (we use Sign Up Genius):
