WELCOME to the City HOST Program

If you LOVE Carpinteria, enjoy sharing your Carpinteria knowledge, and like to help others, the City HOSTs want you!

The City HOSTs create a welcoming environment showcasing our friendly and inviting community. HOSTs greet visitors, answer questions about Carpinteria, and provide information on the many activities available, points of interest, and places to shop and dine.

During the summer months, HOSTS volunteer their time at the Kiosk on Linden Avenue. HOSTs work in teams of two on either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday in two hour shifts (10am, noon, and 2pm).

The HOST Program has been a Carpinteria tradition for the last ten years. HOSTs have donated over 6,500 hours, greeted nearly 62,000 visitors from almost every state and more than 22 different countries.

If this sounds like the opportunity you’ve been waiting for please contact Mimi Audelo at (805) 755-4401 or mimia@ci.carpinteria.ca.us
