The Fargo Park District is looking for volunteers to help with special events and recreational programs throughout the year. Many ages and skill levels are welcome in the volunteer program.

The Department of Cultural Activities relies on volunteer assistance to make events happen. Volunteers can assist in setting up and working at events. Volunteers can be greeters, ticket takers, game operators, and parking attendants. Some events encourage families and large groups to participate together.

Cultural Activities Volunteer Opportunity:


Midwest Kid Fest: June 13th at Island Park from 11:00am-7pm. Teddy Bear Parade starts at 10:30am!


This event is a fun event where families and daycares come to be active in the park.  Normally there are about 6,000 people that come out throughout the day.  We have Sanford Children's as our major sponsor as well as FM Radio, Erberts and Gerbert's Sandwhich Shop and Kid Core. Businesses and organization from the FM area come out and have an activity to try. Some other things to see and do are stage performances, inflatable games and multiple food vendors available for lunch or dinner.  There are carriage rides through the park and pony rides for the young kids to ride.  Even the Fire Department, Police Department and FM Ambulance are there to show off their vehicles and what they do for a living.
