The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts heavily relies on the work and enthusiasm of hundreds of volunteers each year. We invite you to be part of the fun! Volunteer opportunities exist year-round at special events including parades, Light City, Artscape and the Baltimore Book Festival, as well as School 33 Art Center, Top of the World Observation Level and in the BOPA offices.

Each volunteer activity provides its own unique rewards. All volunteers will gain the satisfaction that they are actively promoting arts and culture in the city of Baltimore. Also, we thank our volunteers with benefits such as event t-shirts, refreshments and free parking when available.  We hope to see you soon!

Please note, volunteer opportunities are open to registered BOPA volunteers. If you would like to apply to be a BOPA volunteer, please click here.
