100+ Volunteers are needed for the Whirligig Festival.


Groups of volunteers are encouraged to volunteer too!

Volunteering at the Wilson Whirligig Festival is a great way to meet new friends, learn about what happens behind the scenes of the festival and give back to your community.

The Festival accepts applicants who are 15 years old and older. Volunteering can be counted as community service hours for school and work. Volunteer opportunities can vary from light work to heavy lifting. All of the volunteer categories are listed on the volunteer application.

Looking for a Senior Project, Eagle Scout Project, need to complete community service hours for National Honor Society or school? The festival could just be what you need! We've had many young leaders volunteer, coordinate and assist with festival projects to complete their requirements. For example, Our Wilson Eagle Scouts Beau White and Will Tulloss both completed projects at the Wilson Whirligig Festival that were used toward their Eagle Scout Awards. You can too!
