Volunteer: Keene Ice and Snow Festival

Date(s) - 02/01/2020
10:00 am - 4:00 pm


The 18th Annual Keene Ice and Snow Festival, presented by the Keene Downtown Group, takes place on Saturday, February 1, 2020 from 10am to 4p.m. in downtown Keene.
Sign ups are open now.

GSAs can volunteer at the NH Information Booths, which will be set up at Central Square at the top of Main Street (Gazebo area) and on Railroad Square. Booths will have information from the NH Division of Travel and Tourism, Keene Chamber, local Monadnock Region information as well as Keene Ice & Snow Festival Events Map and Information.

Due to the fact that the booths are outside, shifts are 2 hours long. Feel free to sign up for more than one if you wish to stay longer.

Please remember that this is an outside booth. Dress warm in layers: coat, gloves, scarf, hats, heavy socks, etc. as it is very cold outside this time of year. A break will be given from time to time to go inside the Keene Chamber office to get warm.

When you arrive, go to the Keene Chamber Office for sign in and to pick up event parking pass for dash of front windshield. If for some reason you get a parking meter ticket, please leave it at the Chamber office for Jim or give it to Jim. Sorry if this happens, as we try to prevent this from happening. THANKS.

Keene Chamber address: 48 Central Square(Downtown), Keene, NH
