Open House Chicago volunteers welcome visitors to the Chicago Board of Trade Building.

Volunteer for Open House Chicago

Sign up here to volunteer for OHC 2015!

Volunteers provide essential support during the Open House Chicago (OHC) weekend by ensuring that visitors are properly greeted and informed. Each year during Open House Chicago, more than 1,300 people volunteer their time in support of this cultural event.

Volunteer Greeters:

Volunteer Greeters can be found stationed at the entrance to all OHC sites controlling admission, answering questions and tracking visitor attendance. Greeters typically work one 4-hour shift, which leaves plenty of time to explore the city for the remainder of the weekend.

Volunteer benefits:

  • Priority access at all OHC sites for you and a companion
  • 50% off a CAF membership
  • 15% discount at the CAF retail shop
  • OHC T-shirt and lanyard souvenirs
  • Two free CAF walking tour passes

Thank you for your interest in Open House Chicago!
