Festival Volunteering

Without our volunteers the Somerville Dog Festival just couldn’t go on! Help us help pets by taking a shift during the festival.

General Volunteers

Morning set-up and break-down,  line-minding, field ambassadors and overseers, and lending a helping hand wherever needed are all critical to the Festival.
We need your help!

High School Team

Satisfy your community hours! Come help with morning set-up and afternoon break-down, tool and maintenance tasks, signage, tent duty and more – all critical to the Festival. We need your help!
