While Balloon Fiesta does not offer paid workamp positions, we have a team of RV volunteers who work additional hours and receive RV parking, hook-ups and other benefits when a certain level of volunteer hours is reached. If you're interested in our workamp positions, please read the following requirements.
- Workampers will be required to work 120 total hours per person, working 4-5 hours per day.
- Workampers will need to arrive on or around Labor Day and work through Balloon Fiesta for 2-3 days following the event.
- Workamper tasks involve physical labor, such as pulling weeds, moving stones and rocks, and picking up trash in order to prepare the RV lots for the event.
- During the event, workampers park arriving RVs from 8a-7p. Depending on how large the RV team is, the hours of parking may be split into shifts.
- Workampers must meet the basic Navigator training requirements, which consists of watching five videos, which each last less than 30 minutes. Each video is followed by a short quiz and you must receive passing grade of 80% or higher.
- Workampers who meet the above requirements will receive free RV parking with complete hook-ups for water and electricity.
- Workampers also receive full Navigator packs, which include:
- Admission into the 9-day event
- Access to the Navigator Hospitality Tent for meals and snacks
- The current year's Navigator shirt
- Invitations to a variety of Balloon Fiesta parties
- The current year's Navigator Outerwear Item
- The current year's Navigator lapel pin
- The current year's Official Event Program
- The current year's Official Calendar
