Information & Instructions for Volunteers

Hello to our 2019 Charlotte Pride Volunteers!

First, we want to thank you for signing up to volunteer for 2019 Pride festival and parade! We are less than two weeks from what will be an amazing two days. We couldn’t make this happen without your help, but before you get on the ground there are a couple of tips we want to share to help you make the most out of your Pride experience.

  • Check In: All volunteers will check-in at the Volunteer Tent which is at intersection of Tyron St and 3rd Street inside of the festival. If you’ve been to the festival before, this is near the Food Court.
  • Parking & Transportation: We encourage folks to park off site, and take the light-rail in. You can read a little more about parking and transportation on this page of our website.
  • Attire: Please wear comfortable clothing. We encourage shorts, sneakers, and things you don’t mind getting a little warm and sweaty in. It’s hot in August, but we’ll be giving you a fresh Volunteer shirt to change into when you arrive!
  • Hydration: We definitely encourage you to bring a refillable water bottle. There’s water available for our volunteers throughout, but it’s a good idea to have an extra bottle on hand. Please hydrate before you get to the festival too!
  • Sunscreen: Please wear sunscreen! We don’t want anyone getting a Pride sunburn.
  • Ask Questions: If you have questions ahead of time or during the event, please ask our Volunteer Team or anyone in Staff shirts. We’re there to help ensure everything goes smoothly!
  • Volunteer Waiver: Please CLICK HERE for our volunteer waiver. All volunteers will be required to sign this before their shift.
  • Volunteers Under 18: All volunteers under 18 must bring a signed copy of this waiver to the check-in tent with parent or guardian signature or must bring a parent or guardian to help check them in.

Thank you again for signing up to volunteer. We’ll be sending more individualized sign-up messages next week as we get closer to the event. See you next week!
