Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce
Now in its 46th year, the Rockport-Fulton Seafair celebrates autumn’s arrival at what we call the Charm of the Texas Coast. Designed with families in mind, the three-day festival features an old-fashioned parade and the wildly popular crab races. It also includes arts and crafts vendors as well as gumbo cook-off, cardboard boat races, hilarious crab races and a kayak demonstrations.
Check out the website for the live entertainment lineup at www.rockportseafair.com.
Seafair Organizers are looking for local volunteers to work three-hour to four-hour shifts. Volunteers will receive a Rockport-Fulton Seafair T-shirt and admission to the festival that day.
All volunteers are asked to attend the one-hour training session under the Big Tent at the Festival Grounds at 5:30 p.m. the Thursday prior to the opening of the festival. And... speaking of fun...we always have something fun for the volunteer training!
VOLUNTEER CHECK-IN I have volunteered, now what do I do?
Check in at the “Volunteer Entrance” to the festival Grounds 30 Minutes Before Your Shift Time. A private dressing room will be available there for you and your group to put on your Festival T-Shirt(s).
__ Check-in at the Volunteer Entrance
__ Receive instructions to your post
__ Change into your FREE festival T-shirt
*FYI: Hospitality Carts will bring water to you at your post*
After checking in, make your way to your post.
Learn your position:
If you are the first shift of the day, the chairman for your area will be there to give you instructions.
If you are the second or third shift, you will likely get your instructions from volunteers who you are replacing at the shift change time.
Where do I park?
If you are working the midday or afternoon shift, please allow time to find parking. Festival goers will be coming and going, so you will have to cruise for a spot most likely.
Can I get in before my shift to see the festival?
Yes, come check in at Volunteer Check-In to collect your T-shirt , then you will be able to enter the festival. Please note, the entrance gate volunteers will only let you in if you are on the volunteer list.
The festival could not be done with out you! Thank you for volunteering!
