Folsom Street East is a 100% volunteer event, and we only thrive on the enthusiastic participation of our volunteers. And volunteering puts you right in the heart of the action. We need people to help setup, put on the event during the day, and finally take it down. Shift times are relatively short, so you will still be able to a full day of fun and debauchery. All Volunteers receive a Folsom Street East Crew t-shirt and a generous helping of gratitude…which comes in many forms.


If you signed up and did not receive  a shift, please check your spam filter for email from   Or email the volunteer coordinator at

If you would still like to help out, feel free to email with your specific availability.
