Your participation makes this event possible. We need you!
First Night is a community event — planned, executed, and staffed by people just like you. We are currently seeking outgoing and energetic individuals to serve as volunteers for the city’s largest New Year’s Eve Celebration in downtown Harrisonburg. Although First Night takes place on New Year’s Eve, the preparation is a yearlong process, which requires the support and commitment of the Harrisonburg community, businesses and government officials.
The night of the 31st, more than 50 volunteers are needed to help with a number of tasks listed here:

Assist with helping guests find their way around to the performances and venues.
Volunteering for one shift would be greatly appreciated. First Night Harrisonburg invites you to lend a helping hand. Once you submit this form, you will be informed about the details of your assignment by email or phone.
