Volunteer Information


Castro Street Fair volunteer group

Sign up to volunteer here: Volunteer Registration CSF 2022

Volunteers are the heart of the Castro Street Fair and help us with a number of important roles, including donation collection, production support, info booth staffing, and foot patrols.

The hours that volunteers work generate valuable funds for the nonprofit beneficiary organizations that partner with the Fair.

Our 2022 beneficiaries include Buen Dia Family School, Castro Community on Patrol, Castro Merchants Association, Everett Middle School, Imperial Council of San Francisco, Instituto Familiar de la Raza, Most Holy Redeemer AIDS Support Group, Queer Life Space, SF CASA.

If you’re signing up to be an Entry Gate volunteer, please watch our 4-minute training video before your shift at the Fair!

Where to check-in/out at the Fair

Volunteers must come to the volunteer booth to have their time logged in and out. Please arrive 15 minutes before your start time, and remember to check out at the end of your shift.

The volunteer booth will be located in the parking lot behind the Castro Theater located at 457 Castro Street.

The booth will be staffed from 6:00am to 8:30pm on the day of the Fair. All volunteers who have selected shifts that end after 6:30pm should log out at safety booth (located next to the volunteer booth).

Recording volunteer hours

The staff at the volunteer booth will record all registered volunteers start and finish times. Volunteers that fail to come back to the volunteer booth to log out at the end of their shift, will not have their time logged towards their selected beneficiary organization. If for any reason a volunteer can’t complete their shift, please come by the volunteer booth to log out.
