Hampton Beach Seafood Festival

September 7, 8, & 9, 2018

With over 150,000 attendees annually, the Hampton Beach Seafood Festival has become the largest event held in the great State of New Hampshire and has been acclaimed as “One of the Top 100 Events in North America” for the last 15 years by the American Bus association. To learn more about the Festival, please visit their website at hamptonbeachseafoodfestival.com

We are offering GSAs the opportunity to receive hours credit for volunteering at this event because of our partnership with the Hampton Chamber of Commerce, and you will sign up directly with their volunteer managers, who will report your hours back to us after the event. To sign up, contact Dyana Martin and Tom Dwyer at volunteer@hamptonchamber.com. They will assign you a volunteer spot based on your interests, and can answer any questions you have about the event.

When you e-mail them, let them know you are a GSA so your hours will be tracked.
