The Minnesota Irish Music Weekend is three days full of incredible music and fun activities.  We need volunteers like you to make it a success!  Registration, concert set-up, food set-up, and general clean-up…..even just an hour of your time can make a big difference.  Please consider sharing your talents with the CIM community by sending an e-mail to volunteer@centerforirishmusic.org with your name, phone number, e-mail, available day/time and any specific areas of interest.  You can also submit an on-line volunteer form here.  All ages are welcome!

Thank You to the 2019 event sponsors:
