Special Event Volunteers
Are you interested in helping out for just one morning or afternoon?
Special events are the perfect opportunity for an individual or group to get involved and be connected with one of Madison's premiere events.
If you or your group is interested in helping out with an event in the future, please fill out the form below and the volunteer coordinator will follow up with additional information.
Volunteer opportunities for special events include:
Halloween at the Zoo
Volunteers help make Halloween at the Zoo a fun and successful community event.
This long-time Madison tradition continues to provide area families and children with a safe and fun place to enjoy free trick or treating, strolling entertainment, and other family-friendly activities.
Volunteers set the stage in the days leading up to the event by carving pumpkins and decorating the Zoo. On event day, help with event set-up and clean-up, greet visitors at the gate, provide directions, help in the activity tent or with the bounce house, or do face painting.
Volunteer positions for this event tend to fill early, so please let us know a couple months ahead if you are hoping to get your group involved in volunteering at Halloween at the Zoo.
Zoo Run Run
Interested in helping out for just one morning? The Zoo Run Run is a 5K/10K walk/run. Roo Run Run is a kids multi-distance fun run that is held in conjunction with the larger event. Both benefit Henry Vilas Zoo.
Volunteers are essential for the Zoo Run Run, helping with event signage and set-up, pre-registration and packet pick-up, providing course directions and staffing water stops, coordinating the Roo Run Run, greeting visitors, and event clean-up.
