Volunteering

What's the most fun thing to do at Parade? Volunteer to work at an event. The Porsche Parade is 99% volunteer supported! That's how all of us from all over the country get to know each other, by working a couple of volunteer shifts during the week with other PCA members. Volunteers are very much needed with the numerous tasks to help make this event run smoothly.

By volunteering to work at the Parade, you will receive a specially designed shirt to be worn while you work. When you complete a shift, please have your Volunteer Worker card stamped. A shift is between 3 to 6 hours, normally a morning (AM), mid day (MD) or an afternoon (PM) shift. Work two shifts and you will be qualified to attend the Worker's Party luncheon held at To Be Announced (TBA) on Saturday, June 25th at 11am which includes a great lunch, time for socializing, and door prizes. It’s free just for being a Parade Volunteer Worker as a registered entrant.

Children 14 years of age and over can volunteer for most events with the permission of their parents and at the discretion of the event chair.
