Thank you again for your interest in volunteering for the Steveston Dragon Boat Festival.
Festival Volunteers work primarily providing excellent customer service throughout the site. Festival Volunteer duties include:
A smaller number help us before the festival with leadership activities such as organization, administrative, coordination, and social media.
Race Volunteers are assigned to work specifically with the dragon boat teams on-water, on the docks, at paddler meeting areas, and in Racer’s Village. Volunteers are assigned to their stations at the start of each race day and training will be provided at the beginning of each shift. Though there are a number of tasks to be performed, the majority of work is down on the docks, supervising the loading and unloading of paddlers safely into and out of the dragon boats.
