Based on the experience of developed countries, festival activities can be used as a vehicle to cultivate the volunteerism of young citizens to work in the midst of society. Helping and lighten the agenda of activities within the community should be built from the connectivity between individuals. This study aims to find the form of active citizen participation, increase knowledge, increase social experience, and personal skills to public issues as a form of civilization citizenship in the event of Krakatau festival in Bandar Lampung, Indonesia. Qualitative research with this ethnographic method found that volunteers are very helpful in organizing the festival as a sense of caring and personal satisfaction. The results show that self-care in the work, mobilizing fellow volunteers should be prioritized and learned to foster commitments that promote honesty, fairness, and responsibility. But the true influence of individualist life is a challenge of changing attitudes of individual behavior. Therefore, the extent of volunteer activities can be implemented maximally in building self and society. Keywords: Festival, Civic Virtue, Volunteerism, Citizens.
