One of us, one of us!

Have you ever wanted to be more involved in the con scene? Maybe see some of the behind-the-scenes action? It’s the PERFECT time for you to apply to be a volunteer for Matsuricon 2017! If you work 24 hours over the con weekend, you’ll get your badge for free! There are great perks and wonderful people to meet!

We especially need help in our Staff Suite department. Staff Suite volunteers are the amazing people who help cook for and feed all of our volunteers, and it’s an important job! You don’t need any food-service experience, we’ll teach you what you need to know.

Check out our Volunteering page and submit an application! You must be at least 16 years old by August 25th, 2017.
