Be a Volunteer

Whether you’re an active gardener or simply looking for a way to get involved in Chicago, the show can use your help. The Chicago Flower & Garden Show annually draws in more than 40,000 attendees to the Festival Halls in Navy Pier, meaning it’s “all hands on deck” for the development and management of each event.

For that reason, we’re always looking for extra hands to support the success of the Chicago Flower & Garden Show with volunteer positions. We have a variety of on-site opportunities that put you in the mix of the show’s excitement—each giving you a different perspective and chance to be involved. Opportunities include:

Plant Squad: Help keep the gardens fresh by watering and dead-heading the plants. This will be done before and after regular show hours, when the guests have left. 

Greeters: Greet customers and groups to Navy Pier in the lobby and near the main entrances. You will also help check them in with necessary ticket/guide information. 

How-to Garden Assistants: Flex your gardening muscle by assisting Master Gardeners while they host demonstrations. Responsibilities include ensuring each student has a clean workplace and all the supplies they need.

If you’re interested in participating in the 2018 Chicago Flower & Garden Show, let us know! We can always use more help and love meeting enthusiastic people ready to dig in.
