May 25-28, 2018
Comicpalooza returns to Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center, May 25-27, 2018. Comicpalooza is the largest multi-format pop culture con in Texas. In addition to the celebrity photos and autograph opportunities, the event features gaming, film festivals, a literary festival, children activities, a Maker’s Space, and lots and lots of cosplay. Are you interested in being part of something big that brings communities of fans together? As one of our volunteers, you will have the chance to see how a convention works from the inside, meet cool people, make new friends, and most notably, know that you have contributed to the entertainment and knowledge of our attendees!
Key volunteer information you should know:
ALL VOLUNTEER POSITIONS ARE UNPAID.
- Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age (by May 18, 2018) in order to participate.
- Volunteers are REQUIRED to undergo a background check and must sign a participation waiver upon the first shift. (PLEASE FILL OUT YOUR BACKGROUND CHECK WITH VERIFIED VOLUNTEERS. YOU ARE REDIRECTED AFTER YOU REGISTER. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.)
- Each volunteer must sign up for two shifts in order to be considered for the volunteer position.
UNIFORM: All volunteers will receive a volunteer shirt. This must be worn at all times while working. Please pair with jeans, khakis, or black pants and sneakers (sandals are not allowed.) Cosplay is not allowed during your shift unless you are an approved member of the Comicpalooza Street Team.
PARKING: Parking will be available for volunteers. The precise location of the volunteer parking lot will be communicated at a later date.
HOTELS: Hotels are not provided for volunteers.
Please Note: You are not able to participate in show events as a spectator while working a volunteer shift. Each position is essential for the success of this event. We will ask volunteers to leave Comicpalooza if they are unable to perform their duties or if any policies are violated.
