CHICAGO SCOTS would not be able to put on such great events without our dedicated & loyal volunteers! For questions regarding volunteering at the Scottish Festival & Highland Games please email:

Volunteers will be assigned to one or both days for a 3 to 4 hour block of time depending on each volunteers availability. Each volunteer will receive FREE entry to the festival on the day they are volunteering & you will also be given a volunteer t-shirt. Volunteers that work or wishes to work in one of the Beer Areas or Entertainment/Whisky tents must have their Basset Training Certificate.
