Volunteer Opportunities

We Want You!

As always, Gurnee Days’ success is a tribute to the wonderful volunteers, organizations and businesses in our community. The event is planned and organized by the Gurnee Days Corporation, a not-for-profit group of volunteers from our business community, in cooperation with the Gurnee Park District and the Village of Gurnee. The Gurnee Days Corporation welcomes any businesses or individuals who would like to join the committee to help plan and organize events, contact sponsors or help with publicity. If you are interested in getting involved in this great community event, please email volunteer@gurneedays.com.

Volunteers are currently needed for two key committees – Business Community and Great Gurnee Adventure. Please review the descriptions below and contact us at info@gurneedays.com if you are interested in joining the Gurnee Days Committee.
