Volunteer Groups


The City of Greenville produces and sponsors a number of large scale special events throughout the year. These events provide entertainment that showcases the best Greenville has to offer in music, art, culture and food for all ages. In order to produce these high quality and diverse events each year, the City’s Event Management staff depends highly on the support of almost 4,500 volunteers.

Organizations / Non Profits

The City’s Event Management Department offers local nonprofit organizations or groups the opportunity to fill key positions at downtown events including:
In return, volunteer groups can collect tips from weekly events (Piedmont Natural Gas Downtown Alive or Greenville Heritage Main Street Fridays) or revenue from Artisphere or Fall For Greenville based on hours worked during the weekend.


Nonprofit groups are required to be a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with the South Carolina Secretary of State in order to participate. If your group or company is not a registered 501(c)3, you may collect tips or revenue on behalf of a registered 501(c)3 organization.
