Cultural Services

Volunteer With Us

For nearly fifty years, Marin Center has been highly regarded for the quality of its performing arts, civic, and cultural events. Marin Center is dependent upon community involvement. Volunteers are essential to the success of Marin Center, Marin County Fair and Frank Lloyd Wright docent tours. Marin Center's treasured volunteers act as ambassadors. They provide valuable services for patrons as ushers, docents, and County Fair staff. We have opportunities for those who like to work with people and those who want to work behind the scenes to provide Marin Center patrons and visitors with the best service and the finest cultural arts and events.

If you enjoy meeting people, are enthusiastic about the performing arts and are interested in contributing to the success of Marin Center or the Marin County Fair, then volunteering might be perfect for you. Come be part of the fun-be a volunteer! For more information email us.


Volunteer ushers enhance Marin Center's customer service and help make sure the show goes on. Ushers perform many duties including taking tickets, handing out programs, showing patrons to their seats, and seating latecomers. They are often able to see performances at which they work. Our incredible volunteer ushers contributed 6,200 hours to Marin Center last year! 

Marin County Fair Volunteers

The award-winning Marin County Fair is a showcase of local creativity and enterprise. Each year, volunteers help plan, set up, and staff the Fair. Their talents and energy make the Marin County Fair the community celebration of the summer. 

Frank Lloyd Wright Volunteer Docents

Love world-class architecture? We’re looking for Frank Lloyd Wright enthusiasts to lead tours of the historic Marin County Civic Center. Expand and share your knowledge of architecture, design, and Marin history with visitors from near and far. This is an excellent opportunity for volunteers with good speaking voices who enjoy teaching and leading public, private, and school groups on 1.5-hour walking tours of this national architectural treasure, Wright’s last commissioned project. Expert veteran docents provide training, and staff provides background materials and supervision.
