Having the tall ships come to Kenosha is a gift to all of us.  They bring educational opportunities, economic impact from our visitors and a greater appreciation for our downtown.  We hope you will consider volunteering to help with ship tours, visitor information, the Pepsi Children’s Village, the Kenosha Community Sailing and Yacht Club Sailaway Village and more.

  • Teams of 8: The ships providing deck tours need 8 people per shift (am and pm).  This is a good opportunity to bring a team of family, friends and co-workers together.

  • Pre-Training: Volunteers are required to attend one of 3 orientation meetings prior to the event and must commit to work a minimum of 2 shifts during the festival.  Volunteer training will take place at Kenosha’s Northside Library (please pick one date):
    Saturday, July 13th 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.;
    Tuesday, July 16th 3 – 5 p.m
    Wednesday, July 17th 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. 

    Please note: Kenosha Tall Ships® 2019  is an outdoor, rain or shine event and our volunteers spend a lot of time in the sun and on their feet.

Extra Benefits:  In addition to having a wonderful, shared experience, volunteers will receive a volunteer t-shirt and  break area with snacks during your shifts. Volunteers who commit to work at least 3 shifts also receive a Souvenir Passport. All who donate their time and talents are invited to a Volunteer Recognition party which will be held shortly after the event. Thank you, in advance, for considering this opportunity!

  • Volunteer Guide Book will be available in June.
