Welcome to Downtown!

Volunteers are at the heart of Renton events and community! From one-time opportunities to ongoing needs, we have a variety of options for volunteers to contribute to the community. Please fill out this interest form and we will contact you soon. Thank you!

More information about volunteer roles is listed below the form.  Scroll down for additional information!

Downtown Clean-Ups

Join us for our quarterly clean-up events! Refreshments and supplies (grabbers, bags, vests, and gloves) will be provided. Any amount of time you can donate would be greatly appreciated as we strive to do our part for a litter-free downtown!

Help with Special Events

We are always looking for volunteers to help us on the day of special events. These include community events such as the twice-annual Wine Walk, our Halloween event, Small Business Saturday, and the Santa House. You can find links to more information on these and other downtown events here. After signing up, make sure to check your email for updates on event volunteer recruitment and training!
