Our volunteers are what make everything we do possible! Whether you have a knack for fundraising or are a pro with spreadsheets - there is a way for everyone to get involved! To make Pride Fest 2022 a reality, we need community support to make the event happen. Without this support Pride 2022 will not happen. Below is the list of committees where community members can volunteer to help with the planning of PrideFest 2022:
If you have a knack for event planning, then this committee is for you! Help organize all activities taking place at NewBo City Market on the day of PrideFest. Have a say in stage performances throughout the day and help develop the stage itinerary.
Use your persuasion and writing skills to help raise funds for our events throughout the year. This committee will partner with area businesses to host/plan fundraisers and will assist with our letter campaign for donations. Have experience writing grants? We need your expertise!
This year’s poster parade was a big success and we are looking to carry that momentum into 2022 with our first in person parade. Help with all things parade - from coming up with the theme to ensuring we have all road blockades to developing the parade participant line up, we need you to make this a success!
If you more of a “behind the scenes person” then this might be the perfect opportunity for you! Work with other committees to ensure they have the resources needed for a successful event. Hey, someone has to make sure those porta potties are ordered and the drag queens and kings have a place to change and a stage to perform on!
Use your skills to help promote PrideFest and our other events throughout the year. This committee works closely with the PrideFest, Events, Parade and Fundraising Committees to ensure that the events are promoted in the community and included on our social media accounts.
Outreach and Volunteer Coordination
Be a voice for CRPride out in the community by reaching out to other organizations that we may support in their efforts. This committee works closely with PrideFest, Parade and Events committees to ensure they have the volunteers needed to have successful events.
Help ensure PrideFest is a success by developing vendor information for our website, emails and pricing information. This committee is responsible for assigning all vendors to available space at PrideFest and work as a Pride Ambassador to ensure our vendors have a successful experience. Committee Members are responsible for assisting with vendor check in the day of the event and must be available starting at 7 am!
We understand that there is more to Pride than just the PrideFest festival. This committee assists with the planning of our other events throughout June and July. If you have ideas on how to make Pride month a great experience for all types then this committee might be for you!
We'd like to extend a huge thank you to everyone in the community that dedicates their valuable time to helping us achieve our goals!
