Volunteer

Celebrating the first bud of spring, Morikami’s largest annual event, Hatsume Fair, transforms the normally tranquil Morikami Park into a unique Japanese spring festival featuring two stages (with taiko drumming, martial arts demos, and our annual costume and fashion show contest), avenues of artisan booths, plant sales, Japanese street fair food vendors and children’s activities. Volunteers get an exciting inside look into Morikami’s festivals, and ensure the success of each and every one of our events!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Hatsume Fair. At this time we are no longer accepting applications.
