Santa's Workshop is a very important place to volunteer - it's where all of the magic happens, behind the scenes! We need you to sign up to help create new, and repair old Stroll on State decorations. It doesn't matter if you are artistic or have great carpentry skills - we literally have a job for everyone and will find the right fit for you. If you do have a specialty skill - please let us know, we would love to put your talents to good use! Santa's Workshop is led by Rockford Sharefest and located at 310 S Winnebago St. and just like the elves at the North Pole make Christmas happen, these workshops make Stroll happen. Please join us to give something back to the community and have fun while doing it!



The Holiday Season has come and gone and now it's time to put away all the decorations from Stroll on State that have been enjoyed during the event and the rest of the holiday season in downtown. Please consider helping out Saturday, January 8. There will be two volunteer shifts, the first from 8:00 a.m. - 12 p.m. and the second will be from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. Both shifts occur outside so please dress warmly. Please meet at the Sharefest Building at 3:10 Winnebago St. Parking will be identifiable by signage.

Use the link above to sign up and thank you again to those who have already volunteered to help make our community a better place and those who are about to!
