Tiki Kon wouldn't be possible without the generosity and dedication of our volunteers. We are seeking assistance with a wide variety of positions and tasks, such as ushers/door staff, guest registration, merchandise sales, decor production, hospitality, and more. Opportunities are available before and during Tiki Kon weekend. It's a fun way to see Tiki Kon from a new angle and make new friends.

In addition to helping create the best guest experience of any Tiki weekender in the country, volunteers are welcomed into our family of Tiki enthusiasts. It's a great way to meet people and make new friends. Volunteers also earn event admission, discounts on merchandise, and invitations to the big post-event cast party, depending on number of hours contributed.

  • All volunteers - invitation to pre-event meetups/parties
  • 8+ hours - basic weekend pass
  • 16+ hours - invitation to the Tiki Kon cast party in August and discounts on remaining Tiki Kon merchandise
