Thanks for your interest in being part of the Dallas Fan Festival Crew!

Starting in 2017, we moved to a model where Crew are paid to be part of our team. Yes, it’s true, you can get paid to work at Dallas Fan Festival.

As always, we have lots of fun together at the show. You’ll be wearing our cool Orange Army shirts, working with our Leads and Show Management, and sharing the fandom with our attendees.

Recruiting, scheduling and payroll is managed by our staffing agency partner, RemX. Hit the MORE INFO button below to be notified when our 2020 application goes live.


Show Availability:

Naturally the more shifts you do, the more on-the-job knowledge you gain, so we love it when you can work for more than one day. People who can work more than one day will be given priority.


Can I work in a specific area at the show?

As a paid Crew member, we will try to place you where you’ve got prior experience – be sure to advise the staffing agency if you’ve worked in a certain area before. However, in this paid role we may need to move Crew members around to different areas of the show based on where it’s busy or slower. We require flexibility in this regard. No one on Crew “owns” a certain position or placement at the show. Requesting to be placed with a specific Celebrity Guest tends to make our fanboy/fangirl radar go off and can ultimately influence decisions on where you are scheduled.


Crew Expectations:

As a paid Crew member, you are responsible for your own transportation, accommodation, and food during the show. You’ll receive a Dallas Fan Festival show shirt – please let us know your size when you apply. If your shift ends early the day you are scheduled, then you can attend the con for the remainder of that day.


Can I work with my friend?

Make this request directly to the staffing agency because they are responsible for scheduling.



If your financial situation doesn’t allow you to participate in paid employment, then you will need to follow up with our designated staffing company to discuss your specific situation.



The staffing agency will work with you to complete various forms ahead of time to ensure your check-in on show days are quick and easy. If you have not been a Crew member for Dallas Fan Days in the past, then a follow up interview may be requested.
