BBQ on the Hill Volunteer Team


Looking for a fun, enriching and rewarding way to give back to the community? Join the Q-Crew, our team of volunteers for the Blue Island Park District’s BBQ on the Hill Cook-off and festival. Q-Crew members are a combination of locals looking to gain exposure to exciting happenings in the area, meet outgoing people like themselves, and folks dedicated to the success of events that benefit the community at large.  These opportunities are fun and great for groups of friends, students, and individuals looking to experience all aspects of our festival.  The support of our volunteers helps us to continue our festivals each year. We truly appreciate your support, we couldn’t do it without you!


If you have a group or have any questions about becoming a Q-Crew volunteer, please e-mail the volunteer coordinator at and our team will get back as soon as possible.
