Is there parking? Yes! Magnuson Park does have several parking lots. The lots closer to the event venue will fill up fast so be prepared to walk from lots across the park.

When to go: You will want to arrive on-site at the time of your scheduled shift. If you cannot remember the shift time that you registered for, you can look for your shift confirmation from Universe or email volunteer@theworldisfun.org. If you arrive late for your volunteer shift, we may not be able to accommodate you.

How to find us: Upon arrival at Hangar 30, let the event staff know that you are there to volunteer and they will direct you to the volunteer check-in area.

TWIF Lead: We have a TWIF Lead at every event to lead the volunteer group. They will be your go-to person for everything you need during the event. 

What to bring: You must have proper identification with you to volunteer. A water bottle and a snack are also never a bad idea. This event does not have any secured storage so please only bring what you can carry on your person.

What to wear: Please wear comfortable shoes as you will be on your feet and clothes that you're not worried about getting a little bit dirty. Layers are always a great idea as large airplane hangars can get chilly.

Will we be inside or outside? Inside

Can I bring a friend? All volunteers must be registered for a shift. If you have a friend that would like to join you, please ask them to register through our website. If all shifts are full, please have them sign up for the waiting list and note that they are wanting to join you. Although space is often limited at these events, we will do our best to accommodate them.

How does this help? Proceeds from this event go to The World is Fun's programs in Seattle. These programs help us engage more Seattleite's and help our 135+ nonprofit partners. More about our impact in the Seattle community.
