Volunteer Q&A: Do I need to purchase a ticket for the show? No! Working your required shifts IS your ticket in. Volunteer credentials are provided to access the Expo. Do I need to pay for parking? No! The Galactic Expo will provide a free parking pass for the State Fairgrounds parking. How long are volunteer shifts? We require a minimum of a 4 hour (half-day) shift commitment for during-expo volunteers but contact our volunteer coordinator if you have any questions. Full-day volunteers get more responsibility and more reward. ;) How old do I have to be to volunteer? Minimum age requirement to volunteer is 18 years old. Can I choose what I do at the Expo? Your availability will heavily determine what roles you can play at the Expo. Returning volunteers take priority. Make sure to mention your skills and event experience when filling out the application. Can I work with my friend(s)? Yes! We can make sure you are working the same shift. You may be assigned different tasks but we will try to keep you on the same team. Make sure to submit your applications around the same time and mention your friends name in the application. Can volunteers shop while volunteering? Volunteers working a full-day shift will be provided multiple breaks throughout the day. Half-day shifts will have the opportunity to shop before or after their shift. I have physical limitations. Will they disqualify me from volunteering? Absolutely not! Make sure to mention any considerations we should have in mind when determining a good assignment for you. (Examples: weight carrying limit, needing a place to sit, etc.)
