It’s Fun to be Involved!

With the rising cost of entertainment (including music and demonstrations), the Blairsville Scottish Festival & Highland Games need volunteer help more than ever! Ticket sales and sponsorships barely cover the costs. Without the volunteers, the Scottish Festival would not be possible.

Volunteers are asked to work a minimum 4 hour shift. Responsibilities may include ticket sales, children’s games, children’s train driver, 5k race, publicity, transportation, and more.

Volunteers are also asked to attend a brief volunteer meeting prior to the Festival.

All volunteers will receive a weekend pass to the Games! Get involved and have fun, too.  Clubs and other Organizations are welcome to volunteer as a group, as well.

To volunteer to help at the Festival & Games, please fill out this online form or contact us via email and you will be contacted by our Volunteer Coordinators.

Many thanks to some of our long-standing volunteer groups
