Volunteer for Movies in the Park

On several Saturday evenings each summer, films are shown at Riverfront Park Amphitheater during Movies in the Park.

Movies in the Park

If you are interested in helping with these events, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator. Four or more volunteers are needed at each showing to circulate through the crowd to help guests find a place to sit, hand out fliers, answer questions, and collection donations.

Volunteers are asked to report to Riverfront Park amphitheater (behind the carousel) at 7 p.m. and stay until the end of the movie. City of Salem staff meet with volunteers at the giant screen to give instructions.
