Each year hundreds of individuals donate their time and talents to further the Royal's purpose of providing scholarship, education, awards and competitive learning experiences that reward hard work, leadership skills and agrarian values.
Whether helping with the set up of the World Series of Barbecue® awards ceremony or the livestock exhibitor's social, organizing entries during the American Royal Parade, operating a tack taxi or handing out ribbons during the horse shows, volunteers are at the heart of everything we do.
Volunteer opportunities are available for Horse Shows, Livestock Shows, World Series of Barbecue®, Parade and Royal social events. Join other enthusiastic volunteers who help to make the American Royal "Kansas City's Most Authentic Asset".
