We welcome your assistance
It takes hundreds of volunteer hours over the course of an entire year to produce this event. Your help is required! Everything from hospitality to bookkeeping.
If you are able to help during the Festival weekend:
- Our policy is that four hours of work, in one day, earns you a one-day pass.
- Let us know how much time you’d like to give us, any special skills you have to offer, and if you have a preference for where you’d like to work. There is no deadline for applying, but the earlier the better, so we can place you where you’d like. We encourage friends to apply together!
- Volunteer crews are led by Festival Committee Coordinators who direct volunteer activities in their specific area.
