Volunteer for the Dia de Portugal Festival! Our event is run by a volunteer group of hard-working, dedicated individuals who want to preserve the Portuguese-American heritage in California for future generations to enjoy. There are many ways you can help!
If you would like to participate in planning the festival, join the Festival Committee! We begin holding monthly meetings in October on the third Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the Portuguese Community Center, 1115 East Santa Clara Street in San José. Committee members normally chair a sub-committee so that we can effectively handle the growing demands of our growing festival.
Festival Day Volunteers
If you would like to volunteer on the day of the festival, that’s fantastic too! As a festival day volunteer, you can help in a number of ways. We need the most help in these areas:
- morning set-up
- entrance booth
- information booth
- food and drink booths
- t-shirt booth
- children’s carnival
- afternoon tear-down
We also need help on the day before the festival to set up booths, tables, chairs, signage, and general logistics. Whether you can volunteer on Friday or Saturday (or both), please contact us!
