BECOME A PIFA STREET FAIR VOLUNTEER!
APRIL 23, 2016

On April 23, 2016, PIFA’s highly anticipated finale combines a fun-filled atmosphere with interactive elements. Throughout nine blocks of Broad Street, the PIFA Street Fair welcomes a wide variety of vendors, artisans, and exhibitors who fill the street while Philadelphians are captivated and entertained by a variety of local and international street performers, musicians, and family friendly programming.

We need your help to make this event a giant success! Volunteers will assist our staff throughout the event, providing customer service and assistance to our guests, vendors, and performance artists. Below are list of the different volunteer opportunities.

STREET FAIR VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
AMBASSADORS
Ambassadors will act as friendly facilitators of information and assistance. Volunteers may be stationed at an information kiosk on Broad Street or serve as roaming ambassadors who circulate through the street fair.

Volunteers will distribute information, answer questions and provide parking directions for visitors and vendors. Excellent communication skills are a must. Knowledge of the immediate area is a plus. Volunteers should enjoy working as part of a team dedicated to providing excellent customer service to our visitors. Assignments include standing and walking for extended periods of time.

REGISTRATION VOLUNTEERS and RUNNERS
Registration volunteers help with checking in/checking out volunteers, vendors, and artists. Duties include distribution of information, managing tee shirt distribution, ensuring that volunteers find their area leader and volunteer location. Volunteers also serve as runners, escorting performers to stage areas and lending support in hospitality areas.  At times, this can be a fast paced position that requires patience, excellent organization and interpersonal skills.

BLOCK ASSISTANTS
These volunteers will work closely with event staff to monitor aspects of the street fair, including vendor and artist support, and ensure that each block of the street fair provides a safe, clean and secure visitor experience. This assignment includes standing and walking for extended periods of time. Familiarity with using a communication radio would be a plus.
