The Largest Children's Festival in the United States!

We want to send a super BIG Shout Out & Thank You
to our amazing 2014 volunteers!
We are so grateful to the spectacular team of volunteers
who are critical to the success of the festival.

In fact, we have now raised
over $5 million for Child Advocates, Inc.
and the abused & neglected Harris County it serves.

The McDonald's Houston Children’s Festival is gearing up for its
27th festival set for March 28 & 29, 2015 and we need YOU.
The Festival benefits CHILD ADVOCATES, INC.
and the abused and neglected  children that it serves. 
We will begin accepting volunteer applications in December 2014,
so please check back then.

For more information, we invite to take a look below.

Volunteering for The Festival is a fun time and a great opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the children served by Child Advocates.  We invite you, your family, co-workers and friends to experience it for yourself.

Best friends, judges, booster clubs, moms, attorneys, accountants, secretaries, dads, plumbers, nurses, school  service clubs, families, company teams, sororities, fraternities, teachers. People just like YOU.  And we can put you to work if' you're sixteen years or older. We'd love to have your help even if you're as young as thirteen, but volunteers thirteen through fifteen must have a guardian volunteer with them.

Volunteers are essential to the success of the festival. They keep things rolling by working in the following booths and areas:
  Admissions   *   Coupon   *   Beverages   *   Food     Games   *   Lost Kids   

Tag Your Tot   *  Sponsor  Hospitality *   Greeters   *   Ticket Taker     Flex Team

Thank you for your interest.  We welcome individual volunteers, as well as groups.  So grab your family, some friends from work,  your church group, your school service club or your booster club and come join us.  ANY size group is the RIGHT size. You'll feel good helping such a worthy cause AND you'll have a great time.  Guaranteed.  

I coordinate volunteers for a living and I was incredibly impressed with the volunteer coordination for this event.  I felt like I knew what to do every step of the way.  The reminder emails were very helpful and made it easy to show up appropriately dressed, at the right place, at the right time and park easily.  I had a great time and plan to volunteer next year.  Thank you for the opportunity to do this every year.

Thanks so much for your interest in becoming a volunteer!  
We look forward to seeing YOU March 28 & 29, 2015.
