Call-Out for Gold Rush Days Volunteers!

Call-Out for Gold Rush Days Volunteers!

From friendly greeters to crafty artisans and everything in between, applications are now being accepted for more than 200 volunteer positions to help make Gold Rush Days 2013 yet another spectacular event.  Widely known as Old Sacramento’s annual heritage celebration, Gold Rush Days volunteers are needed over the extended Labor Day weekend -- August 30 to September 2, 2013.

Given the sheer magnitude of the large-scale community event that transforms Old Sacramento into a scene straight out of the 1850s, a large number of volunteers are needed to help with the Gold Rush Days information booth, hospitality tent, first aid station, security booth, children’s activity areas, and much, much more. Some, but not all, positions require period appropriate attire that will be provided.
