We want to thank all of our 2017 Volunteers. Click here to see a list of all the amazing people that made this festival happen.
Behold, the power behind ComFest – OUR VOLUNTEERS!
ComFest is an entirely volunteer run festival, which means we literally couldn’t pull this off without each and every volunteer. Energetic, friendly volunteers are needed all over for a variety of jobs. We have roughly 2,500 volunteer shifts to fill each year, so there’s plenty of room for you to join us!
On-site volunteers are needed as soon as the Tuesday before the festival, and as late as the Tuesday after the festival.
All volunteers receive:
- Exclusive Volunteer T-shirt that you can only get by volunteering
- A Volunteer Token for every hour you volunteer
- Free water during their shift
- Acceptance, high-fives, and smiles galore!
- A place in the ComFest family
Year-around volunteers are also needed for planning. Interested in getting involved? Just fill out this quick form and we’ll get you to the right committee!
Volunteer Central Committee, Year-Round
The Volunteer Central committee serves as a central communication point for all the other committees within the ComFest organization. We gather recruitment and placement suggestions, help assure that pre-festival administrative work is completed, and help the other committees meet their administrative requirements when staffing runs short. Volunteer Central is almost like a virtual Office Assistant, throughout the year, as necessary. We even serve as the festival’s Lost & Found.
The members of Volunteer Central wear many hats throughout the planning process. Early in the Spring we are busy working with the Volunteer Recruitment Committee. Late Spring we get busy assisting with entering volunteers into the database for position assignment and confirmations, sending out sign-up reminders and confirmations, copying and collating informational materials for various event participants and whatever else that may be needed to be prepared for that wonderful last weekend of June!!
This is the location for finding the perfect fit for your volunteer hours when you’re ready to give back to the festival. If you enjoy assisting folks, have special office associate experience, can write letters, are willing/able to run errands, have time to collate and staple, are comfortable with data entry and/or running reports. Volunteer Central just may be the place for you to get comfortable and involved. You don’t need to be a secretary. You simply just need to have a love for working with people, talking to folks, being happy. We are that and more all rolled into one — with plenty of creative room to grow.
Take your experience that “one step further” and come see what we have going on this year!
If you love ComFest, you love people, and you like to have fun…then Volunteer Central just may be the place for you.
Working at Volunteer Central takes no special skills. This is also the location for finding the perfect fit for your volunteer hours, when you’re ready to give back to the festival and take your experience that “one step further.” If you like to talk to folks, give directions and answer general questions about your favorite Columbus event — Volunteer Central just may be for you.
