The Main Matsuri Festival takes place from 12 to 14 August 2022 and you have the chance to support the festival. At Main Matsuri we have several areas for which we would like to engage you. We are looking for volunteers who can stay calm even in stressful situations and always keep a cool head. It is also important that you can be in action for at least 8 hours.
Our areas are:
Assembling and dismantling: You are on site from Thursday until Monday and help with assembling and dismantling. During the event you have no more shifts, but you will be the first ones there and the last ones leaving.
Guest supervision: You look after the guests of honour. Since we have Japanese guests of honour, you should be able to speak Japanese and English.
Access regulation: You will regulate the access and the parking lot so that everyone gets a parking lot in an orderly manner.
Information stand / merchandise: You should have a good knowledge of the festival and help the visitors with their questions. Here you have a good chance if you speak English as all kinds of visitors will come to the information booth. With merchandise you are responsible for the sale at the merchandise table.
Jumper: As a jumper you can be placed anywhere, e.g. help with the reorganisation of the workshop rooms or supporting the catering. Many more tasks will await you on site.
Van Diver: You'll need a class B driver's licence and be responsible for picking up and delivering goods and equipment.
Drinks helper: You'll be responsible for keeping the drinks stand supplied from the drinks depot. This means bringing empty cases back to the drink depot and keeping the supply lines running.
Workshop Assistant: Here you'll be helping set up and dismantle the Workshop Room.
Accommodation: We can offer free accommodation subject to demand.
