Volunteers Needed

We are Seeking Music & Food Lovers!


The 37th Annual John’s Pass Seafood Festival is looking for volunteers to help support the #1 Largest Seafood Festival in Florida!

Your support helps us give back! Last year we were able to donate $10,100 to charities. A portion of this year’s proceeds will be donated to Pinellas County Schools, A Reel Future, Lupus Foundation, and American Heart Association.

The four-day celebration is expected to attract 200,000 visitors. Nearly 300 volunteers made the festival come alive in 2017, organizers expect to need at least this amount this year.

Volunteer jobs include Vendor Set Up, Barricade Attendant, Hospitality Attendant, Ticket Booth Cashiers, Zip Code Collector, VIP Concierge, Beer Truck Host/Hostess, and Floaters. Shifts are 4 hours so you can then enjoy the celebration of the festival!

The John’s Pass Seafood Festival loves its volunteers and to show the festival’s appreciation for their help and dedication, those who give their time and energy are given thanks with a special Volunteer Appreciation Evening Reception and Orientation on Wednesday evening, October 24th (this is a mandatory event). Volunteer Perks include free food tickets, free parking, and a souvenir t-shirt.

We hope to see you all soon!
