Duluth Airshow Needs 100 Volunteers

DULUTH, Minn. -

The Duluth Airshow has quickly become the largest airshow in the upper Midwest, and one of the Duluth-areas largest events overall.

But like all signature community events, it relies on a significant number of volunteers.

With the show just three weeks away, the Duluth Airshow is still in need of 100 volunteers.

Volunteers are primarily needed to assist with concessions and parking.

“The great thing about volunteering at the Airshow is that you earn money for the organization of your choice”, noted Duluth Airshow Public Relations Director Roger Reinert. “This really is unique. In the past, we have had organizations earn from $5,000 - $10,000 in one weekend. It all depends on the number of volunteers, and how well parking and ticket sales revenues are this year.”

Public Relations Co-Director Jodi Grayson added that, “The volunteers we need do not have to have any sort of special skills. They really just need to be friendly, smiling, faces.”

Grayson noted that the majority of Airshow attendees are from outside Duluth; primarily the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

If you or your organization is interested in volunteering, please email the Airshow at volunteer@duluthairshow.com

Volunteers are asked to be prepared to commit to a full day.

The Duluth Airshow will be held July 9th and 10th at the Duluth International Airport.

Scheduled acts include the Air Force Thunderbirds, Jack Links Waco Jet, performer Mike Wiskus, a Marine Corps Harrier, a Navy F-18, and several other aerial performers and static displays.
