In addition to receiving a SeaFeast 2018 volunteer T-shirt, snacks, and beverages, you have the privilege of becoming part of a community-wide, significant regional festival that celebrates our precious marine waters, our rich maritime heritage, thriving working waterfront, commercial fishing and seafood industries, and the culinary bounty of our corner of the Pacific Northwest. Over 10,000 people attended SeaFeast 2017, and this year we expect a bigger and better SeaFeast ’18! We welcome your energy and enthusiasm as part of the fun on our waterfront!  You will receive training and specific information.


Groups/Clubs: Is your group raising money for a specific philanthropy project, updated uniforms for your  club/activity, or travel money to support camps or training programs? Volunteer for SeaFeast ’18 as part of your club or group and in return your group will receive a monetary donation for your volunteer efforts. Many hands make light work!  

Individual members: Spend a few hours volunteering, and the contribution goes to the larger group to support its projects. Volunteer activities will appear soon at the Sign Up button below. We urge you to sign up at this online volunteer management system as an individual. You may sign up for more than one opportunity or shift. 

Stand by for details about Volunteer Training information that takes place in early September.
