The Maine Boat & Home Show would not be possible without the tremendous efforts of our intrepid volunteers. From setting up tents and traffic cones, to staffing ticket booths and collecting trash and recycling, our volunteers make it all work.

Are you interested in volunteering? Great! We need handy men and women, hosts and hostesses, and people who love to be by the water helping out. As a thanks, we'll give you two show passes, a cool Show Crew t-shirt, and a year's subscription to Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors magazine. Just click here to fill out the form, or send an email to for more information.
