You are invited to participate and be a part of Mainsail this year! If you have volunteered before, we need your experience again this year. If you are new to volunteering, Mainsail is an ideal way to become involved in the community. Individuals, schools, civic organizations, church groups and local company employees are invited to assist. We will need at least 213 volunteers so please get involved in this fun and exciting community event!

Festival Dates and Times:

Please check back soon for 2018 dates and times.

Between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday volunteers are needed for:

  • Water Booths
  • Beer/Wine Trucks
  • Promotions/T-shirt Sales Booths
  • Hospitality/Information Tent

All volunteer positions, excluding the Hospitality/Information tent, require the volunteers to be able to stand for 2 or more hours. Should your physical condition limit your ability to do this, you are encouraged to volunteer for the Hospitality/Information tent as this option does provide seating for volunteers.

Continuing this year…

  • Volunteers at beer/wine trucks cannot sign up for two consecutive shifts on any day, or at any location or time.
  • If you are requesting to volunteer for beer/wine sales, you must be at least 21 years of age and you will be required to provide a valid FL Driver’s License or FL ID Number on the volunteer form and must present it at check-in.

All volunteers will be offered a discount price of $5 for purchase of a 2017 MAF T-shirt. Regular cost: $15.
