The Powell Street Festival is a unique festival in that it celebrates so many aspects of the community in an inclusive, accessible and respectful environment. We rely on hundreds of volunteers to make this festival the wonderful event that it is! Volunteering is a great opportunity to meet new friends, spend time with friends and family, and get behind the scenes of this vibrant and special event.

The Festival is August 5th and 6th, 2017  from 11:30 am to 7 pm. Sign-up to volunteer here.

Download our Volunteer Handbook for more detailed information on Volunteering at the PSFS. You must be 16 years of age or older to volunteer.

Festival Committee
The Festival Committee is made up of very dedicated Festival Coordinators. Each Festival Coordinator is a volunteer who is responsible for a specific area of festival production and oversees the volunteers that help with that particular area (including the areas listed below).
