Volunteering

Anyone who's volunteered at the Gilroy Garlic Festival can tell you it's the best way to experience the world's greatest summer food festival! You get to work with friends and family to raise money for your favorite school group, sports team, or non-profit organization while creating an incredible experience for visitors from around the world.

It takes over 4,000 volunteers each year to host the Gilroy Garlic Festival...and we want you to be one of them!

If you are an individual interested in volunteering at the Garlic Festival, please submit your contact information using the Individual Volunteer Interest Form.

Tax-exempt community groups interested in volunteering at the Garlic Festival as a fundraiser should submit information and documentation certifying the group's tax-exempt status using Group Volunteer Interest Form.

Please note that volunteers opportunities are available only on an as-needed basis. Submitting your interest does not guarantee that the applying group or individual will be placed as a volunteer at the Gilroy Garlic Festival.
