Join the PrideFest Family of Weekend Volunteers

Volunteers are needed all weekend long to help in a variety of areas, such as ticket scanning at the gate, security checks, assisting patrons at the info booth, and more!

Each shift includes a volunteer t shirt, food voucher to use with many of our food vendors, as well as opportunities to win prizes and more!

Sign up for as many shifts as you would like, (and honestly feel you can handle.)

Our online registration form  (provided through signup.com) will allow you to choose a shift time(s) and will send you periodic reminders leading up to the festival.  Sign up today! In less than four months, Pride weekend will be upon us!

Simple things to remember:

  • Have questions? Always ask. We are here to help
  • We work hard to be considerate of your personal preferences, and provide you with a suitable work assignment. (Often, we need specific spots filled, and appreciate you jumping in to assist!)
  • You’ll have a manager, ( keep in touch with volunteer@pridefest.com) as well as other team leaders on hand to assist with questions, as well as training pre-festival. 
  • Be confident in your intent to volunteer. There’s nothing worse than waiting for a much needed volunteer to check-in, and never hearing from them. 
  • There are rules for a reason. Follow them.
  • Be respectful and kind to one another.
  • You do NOT need to be LGBTQ+ to volunteer. Just open, and respectful, as well as committed. 
  • This is a wonderful opportunity for you to learn more about the organizations in the community, including your host, Milwaukee Pride, Inc.
  • Most of the main team is running on very little sleep over the weekend, but we always stress, however: GET YOUR REST AND STAY HYDRATED
  • This is YOUR weekend too, have fun. (just please work your shift first!)
  • Realize that you are making a difference.
