Counters estimated 2,000 participants last year and volunteers play a critical role in keeping the event safe and fun!

Here are a few reasons to volunteer for Open Streets BTV:
·A really cool volunteer t-shirt! We are topping last year's orange shirts with something spectacular for you to have as an exclusive Open Streets BTV volunteer keepsake.
·City Market working member hours. All volunteers are eligible to count their Open Streets BTV shift and training time towards City Market working member volunteer hours.
·Free bus, bike parking and car share credits. Signing up to volunteer enters you to win CCTA, CarShare Vermont and BikeLink electronic access bike parking vouchers.
