Day Of Volunteer

Volunteer as an individual or group! There are multiple activities so you can volunteer for a few hours or for the whole day! Volunteers are what makes the day happen! We appreciate all our volunteers!

Committee Members

Work behind the scenes with Red Arch Community Events to produce The Columbus Festival of Lights. There are different opportunities and time commitments available! Our team works hard all year! Some committees meet earlier in the year and some meet towards the end. Monthly email communication to keep all committee members up to date and to list action items. Committee members also have preferential opportunities for volunteer options on the big day!
