A few blocks north of the Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix Public Market Café is a local staple serving terrific, scratch-made food and refreshing drinks sourced from local vendors. They’re outstanding members of the local community, hosting farmers markets, food truck festivals and supporting local food startups.

We’re excited to have such an awesome venue to celebrate with you all!

As WordCamp Phoenix rises from the ashes, it’s going to take a village.

This is your invitation — consider yourself asked: we need dependable hands to help WordCamp Phoenix take flight!

Our volunteers will:

  • Get an inside look at the planning stages of the conference.
  • Be an essential pillar of the event weekend.
  • Be on the ground, meeting WordCamp attendees from all over the world.
  • Receive exclusive, volunteer-only swag.
  • Have the immense appreciation of attendees and organizers!

We’ll do our best to fit the task to the person and make sure everyone can enjoy the WordCamp as well.

  • Event check-in and welcoming.
  • Swag bag assembly.

What Should I Expect?

An early Saturday — arrive by 7:30 AM local on Saturday Oct. 1. If you’re free the Friday before (or more), let us know in the application.
