HUZZAH!! To all potential volunteers, welcome and get ready to enter an extremely interesting, innovative and definitely distinctive realm! Volunteers are the heart, sweat and soul of the Festival joined together by a common passion for the Renaissance period, its history, festivities and customs.
Volunteers must be 17 years or older. In Certain volunteer positions, volunteers may be 16 years or older. This is an excellent way to earn your community service hours for high school and complete your service hours for college organizations!
16th Century, Inc. is working diligently with HandsOn Broward (formerly Volunteer Broward) to allow us to bring as many passionate volunteers into the Festival as possible! We are now accepting applications for Volunteers for the 201 Florida Renaissance Festival season! We have two exciting shows to choose from:
Volunteers must have transportation to and from the event, and must be able to commit to a minimum number of days. We are currently only placing for full-day shifts which will begin at 9:00 a.m. on regular show days.
Volunteers are encouraged to learn about the reign of the season's monarchs. Dress and act like you ARE part of history! Costuming is necessary - Please plan on making your own costume! Great ideas for costumes are to visit your local Consignment store for bargains on perfect Renaissance attire, and browse online for deals! Volunteers are often able to purchase a costume for as little as $20!
If you are interested in volunteering at this season's Festival please e-mail the volunteer coordinator below! Once you are registered, you will be emailed with updates and the dates and times of orientation! And it’s as simple as that! Positions are limited and fill up quickly, so contact us today!!
