DCHV Volunteers

Dakota City's Christmas in the Village

Thank you for volunteering at Dakota City's Christmas in the Village!

Scroll down to find the volunteer station and date you are interested in (you may need to click to the next page). Look to the right and if the spot is available there will be a "Sign-up" box to click on. Complete the information asked for and you'll be all set! An email confirmation of your volunteer shift will be sent to you.

Families and groups can sign up to volunteer together! If you choose to do so, please include the names of everyone in your group in the "Comment" section of the sign-up form.

Volunteers MUST wear a historical costume for this event. Costume pieces must be checked out at the Dakota City office in Ahlberg Hall prior to the event. Office hours are 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM Monday/Tuesday/Thursday/Friday, and 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM on Wednesday. (NOTE: Volunteers at the Drug Store and the Wood Stove Attendants may choose not to wear a costume and instead wear holiday-appropriate clothing.)

Volunteers must be 16 or older to work by themselves. If under 16, we ask that a parent, guardian, or other responsible volunteer work with them.

Plan to arrive promptly at the beginning of your shift to ensure enough time for check-in and setup at your station.

If you have any questions or comments, please call our office at 651-460-8050 or send us an email at [email protected]
