Volunteering

To see all of our available volunteer opportunities, click here.

Recreation and Parks provide events that attract thousands of people to Downtown Westminster every year with events like, Celtic Canter, the Wine Stroll, Fallfest and many more!


To bring these fun and unique events to town we need the help of citizens in our city and beyond to make these events a success. We could not do what we do without the sacrifice of time and support that over a hundred people offer year after year. We hope you will consider coming to one or more of our events as a volunteer! 


Please email westminsterrec@westminstermd.gov or call 410-751-5501 if you have any questions or are a part of a team, organization, or business that would like to participate in what we are doing at Rec & Parks.
