Volunteer with Pride
Pride Planning involves working before June 2nd, on activities (such as permits, themes, organizing the parade, organizing the festival, etc) which must be done ahead of time to allow Pride to happen. This is our most urgent need now.
Pride Planning volunteers do not need to participate as day-of volunteers (though many do) leaving them free to march, be a vendor, or simply enjoy pride day. There are a variety of planning activities that need your talents now!

Volunteer on Pride Day
Every year we rely on our wonderful group of volunteers to make Santa Cruz Pride possible. Santa Cruz Pride wouldn't be possible without the amazing group of volunteers that come together to make the day a success. We need people for a wide variety of tasks ranging from greeting guests and directing traffic to collecting donations and staging the parade - all individuals, groups, and organizations are welcome.
Day-of-Pride shifts are throughout the day to accommodate all abilities and availabilities and allow folks to still enjoy the event themselves. We look forward to seeing you there!
