Looking for opportunities to get involved as a volunteer with the Orlando Renaissance Festival? Join Stephan Halvorsen and the rest of our dedicated volunteers for our monthly Volunteer Days. At least once a month leading up to the weekend festival, anyone who would like to volunteer can come out and help do prep work for the event. There is plenty to do to get this festival up and running, so be sure to keep an eye out for scheduled Volunteer Days coming soon!
Set Up and Set Strike
We will need 5 - 10 volunteers on Wednesday, December 5th and Thursday, December 6th to assist with festival set up, helping to place benches, post signs, various other tasks as needed. Will also need 5 - 10 volunteers for tear down assistance on Monday, December 10th.
THE FESTIVAL WEEKEND
During the festival weekend (December 7th, 8th, and 9th), we will need approximately 30 volunteers each day, 15 for an AM shift 9:00am – 2:00pm and 15 for a PM shift 2:00pm – 7:00pm (hours of shifts are subject to change depending on the festival hours, since I’ve heard they might be adjusted as well). We need our volunteers present and accounted for an hour before opening and an hour after close to assist with set up and tear down each day of tables, chairs, anything else our intrepid Volunteer Coordinator can think of.
Volunteer roles will include:
Runners – at least 3 per shift
Will Call – at least 2 per shift
Greeters – at least 2 per shift
Parking Attendants – up to 8 to assist with directing and parking Guests.
Enjoy complimentary access to the festival before or after your shift! If you plan volunteer for a full day then you can enter the festival on another day of your choosing.
Festival Volunteers must wear some type of renaissance style costume for their shift.
