CALLING ALL SCALLYWAGS
We are always looking for brave souls to assist us at the Boynton Beach Haunted Pirate Fest and Mermaid Splash! When we are ready to gather again we'll want to make the event our most successful yet, but we absolutely cannot do it without YOU! Volunteering for the festival is a great opportunity to have fun and work behind-the-scenes at one of the hottest events in Boynton Beach.
-Kids Zones: Volunteers will assist with the unique and interactive activities that are offered in one of two kids zones at the event. Responsibilities will include line management, ticket distribution, booth helper, and replenishing supplies. Volunteers will be in some sun and do some standing - but they are sure to have lots of fun!
-Vendor Relations: Volunteers are our first line of support for the vendors. They assemble and distribute “Welcome Packets”, assist with load-in/load- out and serve as booth-sitters. Volunteers with lots of stamina, a winning smile, and a helpful attitude will work best in this role.
-Information Booths: We are happy to answer any questions you may have about Pirate Fest 2019. You will be distributing event maps and schedules, as well as assisting event patrons complete feedback surveys. Missing children and lost persons are reunited here and this is as well also a drop off for all Lost and Found items and First Aid services.
-Marketing Ambassadors: Help us spread the word by offering these services: Volunteers will pass out brochures, giveaways, hold signs promoting the event and answer guests questions.
-Treasure Hunt: Volunteers will help organize the hunt by providing maps and answering any questions from participants. Patrons are eligible for prizes which they can redeem at this booth once they completed the hunt.
-Set-up & Break Down: You’ve been building your muscles; now put them to work by joining our set-up and breakdown team. Pirate Fest is a huge event and we need extra hands to successfully set-up and breakdown the event. Volunteers will assist with setting up the décor, stocking the information booth, placing signage, and more. Many hands make light work, so feel free to recruit some friends to join the team too!
For the love of your community, pirates, mermaids, and all things fun! Plus some sweet perks!

- Official Pirate Fest t-shirt and pin
