Become a WaterFire Providence Volunteer

WaterFire Providence may only be a seasonal production, but to make it happen, we need volunteers year-round. For more information on how you can contribute your time, skills, and talents, email our Volunteer Team.

WaterFire Providence Volunteers are an integral part of the event. They assist in all aspects of event production, special projects, and anything else we dream up.

At any one WaterFire Providence lighting, we need at least 150 volunteers to contribute. Volunteers build, perform, inspire, engage, and enjoy! WaterFire volunteers come from all walks of life, and we appreciate the diversity and talents that are among them. Over the years, a network of volunteers has been established, and we are delighted at the community that they have become.

Begin your volunteer experience with WaterFire Providence by signing up now on our Volunteer HQ.

In between lightings, there are more fun activities for volunteers. Potluck dinners, parties, outings, and projects going on throughout the year. In the off-season, volunteers help with boat-building and repairs, mechanical tasks, fundraising, preparations for the next season, and the occasional special project like sewing or online research.

We welcome you to join us and discover just how much excitement and fun there is in producing such a unique and exciting event! Whether you are a “behind the scenes” kind of person, want to shine in a larger role, or you simply want to experience WaterFire from a new perspective, we would love for you to join us.
