This all-volunteer led event is organized by the Rotary Club of Carmel. Our team of volunteers is working hard to make CarmelFest 2020 a fun and memorable experience for everyone as we commemorate our country’s birth and celebrate freedom.

CarmelFest is looking for enthusiastic, community-oriented volunteers to staff our annual festival. This year’s celebration includes an exciting array of performances and events for all ages, but we need your help to deliver “Hoosier” hospitality!

By becoming a volunteer, you will be part of a great event and make new friends while serving the community. We also welcome groups and families to volunteer as a unit.

Volunteer with us!


Thank you to our 2019 CarmelFest Sponsors!
