Volunteers

Help make the magic happen!

Tiki Kon wouldn't be possible without the generosity and dedication of our volunteers. It's a fun way to see Tiki Kon from a new angle and make new friends.

Most shifts are around 4 hours long. Volunteers can earn event admission, discounts on merchandise, and invitations to the big post-event cast party, depending on number of hours contributed.

Volunteer Benefits

  • All volunteers - invitation to pre-event meetups/parties/training, 25% discount on Tiki Kon merchandise
  • 4+ hours - a drink ticket that can be used at any event bar
  • 8+ hours - a Standard Weekend Pass or an equivalent refund if you've already purchased a pass
  • 16+ hours - invitation to the Tiki Kon cast party in late July, 40% discount on Tiki Kon merchandise remaining after the event

Benefits are awarded based on the number of hours you pledge to work. If you shift gets cut short, you will still get credit for it as long as you show up. Volunteers who receive benefits but cancel their shifts or don't show up will not be invited back.

Parking

Instead of driving, we request that you take public transit or a rideshare to the hotel for your volunteer shift, especially if you are attending any of the events or taking advantage of the bars. However, if that's not an option, we have a limited number of complimentary parking passes. Our regular discounted rate for day parking at Tiki Kon is $8/day (no overnight).

Meals

Volunteers who work 8+ hours in a single day will receive a $15 meal credit. There are a number of restaurants nearby, and takeout can be ordered from the hotel restaurant. Volunteers are also welcome to bring their own meals and snacks, though access to a refrigerator cannot be guaranteed.
