Get Involved - Become a Volunteer!

The Southington Apple Harvest Festival is run primarily by volunteers like you! Each year we recruit approximately 200 people to volunteer a few hours of their time over the 6 days of the festival. Volunteers receive a commemorative t-shirt as a thank you for their time.
