We work year-round with a devoted group of volunteers charged with keeping First Night fresh and interesting. By booking our attractions and entertainment months in advance, we are able to present outstanding talent at affordable prices.  If you would like to be a volunteer, please call (609) 525-9284 or email mhartman@ocnj.us with questions.  Download the First Night Volunteer Form by clicking here.


Volunteers are asked to sign up for three-hour shifts.  We have volunteers stationed at each of our venues throughout the city.  Please view the schedule of entertainment and select a place where you would like to volunteer.  Should you have any questions, please call Michael Hartman at (609) 525-9284.  We look forward to hearing from you!
