Description of the Volunteer Opportunity: 

We have a variety of volunteer opportunities:
NAVIGATORS
Balloon Fiesta is large and complex, and there are over 900 volunteers who help us before, during and after the event. These volunteers, called "Navigators," are critical to every area of operations. They provide guest services, administrative services, balloon coordination and safety, set-up and logistics, and more in over 40 different areas.

CHASE CREW
This is a perfect opportunity if you're only available to help for 1 or 2 days. Chase Crew is a fun way to assist pilots in inflating, deflating and chasing their balloons.

WORKAMPERS
While Balloon Fiesta does not offer paid workamp positions, we have a team of RV volunteers who work additional hours and receive RV parking, hook-ups and other benefits when a certain level of volunteer hours is reached.
