The interpretive activities and seasonal events can't happen without our great volunteers. Old Town San Diego State Historic Park is always looking for persons of all ages and backgrounds interested in history and working with visitors.
Help Make Old Town History Come Alive!
Join our enthusiastic group of volunteers who share their diverse interests and heritage in one of the most popular parks. Volunteers bring the park to life in a variety of ways such as blacksmithing, leather tanning, storytelling, gardening, leading tours, assisting in museums, tortilla making, corn husk doll making, artisan’s skills, shoemaking, food preparation, and other fun activities! Join in special events in an 1800s festive atmosphere!
