36th Annual NC Seafood Festival
September 30 - October 2, 2022
Non-Profit Group Opportunities
Over the past 35 years, The NC Seafood Festival has had the privilege to partner with Carteret County non-profit groups who have volunteered their time to work certain aspects of the Festival in exchange for the organization sharing part of the Festival’s profits in the form of a commission. The Board of Directors recognizes the importance of our volunteer groups and understands that it would be impossible to produce the largest event in Eastern North Carolina without the assistance of our valued partners.
Unfortunately, the number of non-profit groups requesting to partner with the Festival is greater than our available positions. Because of this, the Festival has had to enact a lottery system for all groups that have formally requested to volunteer. The lottery will choose groups to work the soda, product, and rides ticket booths. A 20% commission of the net combined profits from all three areas will be divided equally between the groups chosen. Each group chosen from the lottery will be asked to sign a document which states that a copy of the Festival’s Rules & Regulations and a Code of Ethics has been reviewed and that their group will abide by the regulations set forth by the Festival.
If your non-profit group is interested in being included in the lottery, we ask that you complete this form and submit it no later than August 19th. We will conduct the lottery immediately after this date.
Please review the below information outlining each volunteer category and indicate which category you would like to be considered for in the lottery. If you want to be considered for more than one category, please list your preference beginning with your top choice. In an effort to accommodate as many requests as possible, only one position can be awarded per group.
As always, please do not hesitate to call us if you have any questions. The Seafood Festival Loves Our Volunteers!
