Volunteer Opportunities


It takes over 200 volunteers to ensure that the Great Forest Park Balloon Race takes off each year. The Great Forest Park Balloon Race would not be possible without the contributions of our volunteers. If you like being around hot air balloons this is a great opportunity to be a part of the oldest and most well-attended FREE Hot-Air Balloon Event in the World.

Volunteer opportunities range from Traffic Control, Crowd Control/Security, Balloon Crew, Booth Sales, Volunteer Coordination and more. Click the link below to fill out our volunteer form and be a part of this year’s race!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Great Forest Park Balloon Race this year. All volunteer positions have been filled for this year. But please visit our web site after the race for next years volunteer opportunities.
