Tolay Fall Festival Volunteers Needed

September 17, 2014 in News

Sonoma County Regional Parks is seeking volunteers for the annual Tolay Fall Festival at Tolay Lake Regional Park in mid-October. Volunteers are needed to help with heritage crafts and games, wildlife exhibits, hay rides, pumpkin patch visits and other aspects of this event in the hills southeast of Petaluma.

The Fall Festival runs for nine days from Oct. 9-19, with volunteers especially needed on weekdays when hundreds of school children visit. Potential volunteers must attend one of several orientations at Regional Parks’ office in Santa Rosa and can sign up for specific shifts at that time. Orientations are scheduled for Sept. 25, 28 and 30 and Oct. 4. Reservations are required and can be made by contacting Volunteer Coordinator John Ryan at (707) 565-3356 or   (Last year's festival volunteers do not need to attend orientation.)

Fall Festival volunteers will receive a parking pass, a festival T-shirt, and lunch on the day of their shift.

The Tolay Fall Festival is a seasonal celebration that connects visitors with the beauty and history of this special park through activities that are low-key, hands-on, and educational by design. This year, the public is invited to attend the Fall Festival the weekends of Oct. 11-12 and 18-19. (School groups will attend on the weekdays of Oct. 9-10 and 15-17.)
