Roanoke Island Festival Park has several volunteer opportunities available including costumed interpreters in the Settlement Site, the American Indian Town, the Adventure Museum, porch and special programs greeters, Museum Store customer service support, and Elizabeth II volunteer crew members. For a minimum of four hours’ commitment per month, receive four general admissions tickets to the Park and 25% off in the Museum Store! Volunteers needed in Spring, Summer, and Fall. Flexible schedule.

Roanoke Island Festival Park Executive Director, Kim Sawyer, says. ”We are thankful for volunteers who have committed their time and talent to the Park. I look forward to welcoming new volunteers to join the team.”

Come be a part of a team of educators who make History Fun! Help visitors learn about 16th century life as a character in period garb aboard the Elizabeth II or in the English Settlement Site. If costumes aren’t for you, be a docent interpreting in the American Indian Town and the Adventure Museum (blue shirt and khakis). If you enjoy meeting people, learning something new, and working with students in a non-traditional classroom RIFP is for You!

Love retail? Our Museum Store volunteers will assist staff members in serving customers at the Museum Store.

Be a greeter on our porch or on the telephone in our administration offices. Assist with tickets for our Summer Children’s Performance Series and other inside events.

Volunteer aboard the Elizabeth II and participate as a member of the volunteer crew and learn how to sail a square rigger from tying knots to setting sail. Crew members can participate in monthly crew weekends and earn enough hours to participate in a training sail.

Come join us at Roanoke Island Festival Park and help us foster and promote historic and cultural programs.
