Join Us! Volunteer at the Minocqua Dragon Boat Festival!

Be part of something special this year and join our team of amazing volunteers to help make the Minocqua Dragon Boat Festival possible! Volunteers contribute more than 1000 hours to do everything from holding boats to putting up signs. Whether you are more interested in greeting our visitors or getting teams ready to race, there is a job for you. Student volunteers looking for an official record of their volunteer hours are asked to commit to at least two 4 hour shifts between Thursday, August 13 and Saturday, August 15. Please note, all volunteers will receive a free quick dry festival t-shirt and training for their roles on Thursday, August 13 at 5:00 p.m. at Torpy Park. Sign-up before July 1 so we can guarantee your shirt size due to ordering lead times.
