Become a Volunteer
Volunteers make our events happen! From Downtown After 5 to Oktoberfest, our Holiday events to Easter on the Green, we couldn’t do it without our amazing volunteers.

The City of Asheville encourages citizens to become involved by joining one of more than 30 boards or commissions advising City Council on an array of issues from air quality to affordable housing. Find more information and browse openings at the city’s website.
