What We Do
This year we celebrate a landmark Fetish Fair Fleamarket – our 50th! We want and need you to be an important part of this very special event. How can you do that?
- Loading in our Vendors during the day on Friday*
- Loading out of Vendors on Sunday afternoon at the end of the event*
- Checking IDs
- Helping attendees put on the wristbands
- Checking wristbands throughout the venue
- Selling NELA swag
*Load In/Load Out consists of significant physical labor and exposure to the elements so please be sure that you are able to perform this type of activity and can tolerate any number of weather conditions. As such, volunteers who work these shifts, receive double credit (meaning every two hour shift counts as four volunteer hours).
Please follow the instructions then email us at NELAVolunteer (at) gmail.com
This year we're looking for 60 to 70 volunteers to support over 100 classes. Most classes are 90 minutes long and require a 2 hour commitment. In general, the Programming track needs two volunteer positions filled at each class; Introducer and Door volunteer.
- Introducers hand out class surveys and pencils, count attendees, introduce presenters, and make sure that classes start and stop in a timely manner. If you're comfortable speaking to a room full of people, this is an ideal position for you.
- Door volunteers check the wristbands of attendees and control traffic flow into classes. This job often involves politely telling people that a class is full. If you're comfortable with being polite but firm, this is an ideal position for you.
If you are interested in volunteering with Programming for FFF #50, please email our programming volunteer coordinator, Maggie, at fff_programming (at) nelaonline.org with the subject line 'volunteer'.
