Volunteers are essential to the success of the Freedom Festival. Annually, the Freedom Festival is supported through volunteer efforts anywhere from 500-1,000 volunteers! To have such a successful support system, the Freedom Festival is proud to offer the Win-Win-Win Volunteer Program.

Thanks to generous sponsors—Toyota Financial and Alliant Energy—we are able to PAY our volunteers! For every 4-hour shift you work, you’ll earn $25 for a non-profit / charity of choice! Sign up as an individual or get a team together to volunteer for the Freedom Festival AND help raise much needed funds for area non-profit organizations! That’s why it’s a Win-Win-Win!

If you would like to be notified when volunteer opportunities are finalized, either become a "fan" of the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival on the United Way of East Central Volunteer website or email Events & Marketing Director, Karol Shepherd, karol@freedomfestival.com, by Monday, May 31st, 2021.


This community-based program would not be possible without the support of these local sponsors!
