It would not be possible to accommodate over 20,000 people in 20-plus venues and nine hours of programming without the support of hundreds of volunteers. Be a Site Manager or assist with crowd control at a venue, distribute buttons at will-call, help with set-up or tear-down of equipment and stages, use your graphic arts skills to make signs and posters, assist children at Kids' Night Out with art projects, help organize the Procession, or clean up the next day. First Night Monterey depends on volunteer support not just the night of the celebration, but year 'round as well. Help at the Old Monterey Marketplace kiosk in the fall, assist with button distribution and more. We count on you to bring this wonderful First Night Monterey celebration to our community year after year!
