The growing success of Orlando Fringe is sustained by our dedicated volunteers. Each year the Fringe relies on the help of hundreds of volunteers who assist with all aspects of the festival. Volunteers are needed before and during the main 14-day event held in May and the Winter Mini Festival held in January.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Orlando Fringe! We have several opportunities year-round to assist us. Volunteers are needed for cross-promotions, fundraisers and special events as well as the Fringe Festivals held in January and May.
Our next event will be:
Orlando Fringe Winter Mini-Fest, January 3-7
Volunteers will be utilized in different areas of the festival as needed by the Orlando Fringe. We thank you for your time, awesome attitude and flexibility on making the Fringe one of Orlando’s finest arts events!
All new and returning volunteers MUST submit a completed Volunteer Application. Even if you have volunteered at previous Fringes, you must submit an application. Each volunteer applicant must email a recent photo to firstname.lastname@example.org for their application to be complete.
Orientation and Training:
We will hold orientation and training sessions before each event. It is a great opportunity to learn the layout of the festival, see the venues, learn about the roles needed, receive important training from the staff, and meet other volunteers before the show.
Our next Volunteer Meeting Time: TBA
What You Can Expect as a Volunteer
As a volunteer, you can expect to be a valuable part of the Orlando Fringe team. You can expect to be treated with courtesy and respect. We want this to be a positive experience for everyone involved; you should expect to work hard and have fun. While there is a great deal for us to do, there is also time to make new friends and enjoy the festival. Shift lengths run 3.5- 4.5 hours. Flexibility and a sense of humor are always great assets to have!
What Fringe Expects from Our Volunteers
As a volunteer, you are expected to arrive for your shifts on time, dressed appropriately, ready to work, and with a good attitude. We expect volunteers to treat each other, Orlando Fringe patrons, and staff in the same manner that they would want to be treated: with a smile and courteous attitude at all times. Volunteers should plan on pitching in when needed, working hard, and be enjoying what the festival has to offer.
We ask for a 2 shift minimum commitment for the Winter Mini Festival and a 4 shift commitment for the main event in May.
Fringe Volunteer Benefits:
Each volunteer gets a free T-shirt & Orlando Fringe lanyard.
Volunteers get access to see shows for free based on show availability.
