Cafesjian’s Carousel—the historic and treasured merry-go-round that has delighted riders for thirteen seasons at St. Paul’s Como Park—is seeking additional volunteers for its fourteenth season, which begins May 1.

Volunteers operate the carousel, sell tickets, and sell merchandise at the gift shop. They work 3- or 4-hour shifts, two or more times each month. New volunteers are encouraged to apply individually, in pairs or as groups. Training is provided for all positions, and free parking is available. For information about volunteers opportunities, contact Cafesjian’s Carousel at 651-489-4628 or volunteer@ourfaircarousel.org, or visit our website at www.ourfaircarousel.org.

Cafesjian’s Carousel originally operated for 75 years at the Minnesota State Fair. It is now owned and operated by the nonprofit organization Our Fair Carousel, Inc. Volunteers have restored the carousel to its 1914 appearance and installed it in its new pavilion next to the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory at Como Park in 2000. The group pays operational expenses through ticket and gift sales.

The carousel operates Tuesdays through Sundays from May 1 through Labor Day, and weekends from Labor Day until the end of October.
