Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers Are the Foundation of Our Events

Volunteers are an essential part of what makes River Walk events a success. We welcome individual or group volunteers. Tasks range from helping in the office for pre-event setup to day-of-event roles. Registration is easy and online. If you want to connect before registering, please send an email to makayla.robles@visitsanantonio.com


“My group, SA Volunteer Buddies, and I are “volunteer regulars” with the San Antonio River Walk – we love their events! We’re all big fans of the river parades, Fiesta, Wishing Lanterns, etc.! So much fun to help bring so much joy and happiness not only to our community but to the thousands of tourists that visit our city throughout the year! I encourage everyone to try out volunteering – you’ll love it!”

The friendly smiles, electric atmosphere, & the loads of fun we experience at River Walk events keep IBC C&CDC members coming back year after year. We highly encourage every member of the community to join the San Antonio River Walk mission in keeping our city’s lifeline clean, safe, & fun for future generations.”

“I find a deep connection to the San Antonio River Walk, from its history to current posture within the ever evolving system of commerce & community, it provides a magnified experience & perspective to all who wander along its neatly networked banks – be they tourist or native. Having been born in San Antonio, it keeps me tethered to the series of advancements that accompany each age & as I grow alongside this city I feel obligated to assist as ably equipped. I am grateful for the San Antonio River Walk's continued dedication & commitment toward the River Walk.”

“Volunteering with the San Antonio River Walk was such a great experience. Working with people from all over the city, from all different backgrounds and ages to create an experience like no other for the citizens and tourists of our great city - volunteering for them is definitely an experience to have at least once if not more!”

- Rene Orozco

“My time volunteering at the San Antonio River Walk was simply a great experience. Not only did I get to enjoy the beautiful River Walk while doing meaningful volunteer work, but I also met some amazing people during my time there. I was given the opportunity to take on a volunteer role where I could practice and develop my leadership skills to help me in my life and career.”

"I enjoy volunteering for the River Walk because it gives me the opportunity to give back to my city. While volunteering I've made some lifelong friends. Not only has my love for the River Walk increased, but so has my love for the people of MY city.  If you have the time to volunteer, do it!"
