Be a part of our team!
Volunteering is a great way to make new friends and give back to your community. We’re entirely volunteer run, and we welcome all sorts of volunteers – everything from someone offering an hour at an information table to year-long event planning positions. We’re glad to work with you to find an option that fits your interests and available time.
If you enjoy attending Paganicon or Pagan Pride Day and are interested in contributing a few hours of your time to the event onsite, then event volunteering is for you! Online sign up for volunteer shifts will be available closer to each event, or you can email “volunteering” and let us know what you are interested in. We do need a lot of help setting up and cleaning up after events, but we also have other opportunities for individuals who want or need to stay seated.
Paganicon also has some Staff positions available. Staff members put a significant amount of their time into the event in one specific area (Operations, Hospitality, Healer/Readers, Art Show, Programming, etc) and get free admission as well as other benefits. If you are interested in a Staff position, contact the Committee Chair for the area you are interested in or email the main volunteer email and let us know.
