We are preparing our list of areas needed to fill with happy, ready volunteers! Will you be one of them joining us for the 2016 season? Sign up for the weekend, or perhaps lend your talents leading up to the festival!

Visit us at one of our volunteer orientation meetings to see how you too can be involved

Thank you for Volunteering for PrideFest 2016! 

We have set our volunteer orientation dates (see below) and we hope to see you at one of the May dates, and all of you at the June date.  This is where we have the opportunity to meet, and discuss what duties will be handled by each area.

There is just over a month to go until PrideFest 2016, and thanks to all of you, tens of thousands of people walking through our gates will experience one of the most amazing weekends of the summer,

At these meetings, you will learn when & where to arrive for the volunteer check in point, (and any changes) how to get your T-shirt and assignment for your shift, meet some of the PrideFest directors, and so on. We will be in touch with you as soon as possible to confirm your attendance at one of the meetings.
