Volunteering

Porsche Parade is fueled by volunteers. Parade is not only under the leadership of volunteers, it take volunteers like you to make everything run smoothly. Volunteering is a great way to meet PCA members from other regions.

We have volunteer jobs for every interest and ability. Most volunteer jobs are two-hour shifts, giving you plenty of time to participate in Parade events. Volunteer shifts are available beginning the Friday prior to Parade through the close of Parade. We need your help!
