As a festival volunteer you’ll be in the heart of the action from helping set up equipment the night before, to being the first face to welcome our thousands of attendees, or painting faces of children in the Children’s Activities area! This is one of the best ways to find out more about our event, support our participants, and earn FREE admission and other perks. Whatever you do, you’ll be an important part in creating a fun and enjoyable experience for everyone at the festival – including yourself!

Volunteer Perks

As a thank you, all volunteers receive: FREE admission to the festival, FREE restaurant discount card (10% off participating restaurants year round!), FREE drinks and snacks in our hospitality tent, FREE festival t-shirt (volunteers working 3 or more shifts), discount on festival merchandise.

Planning Meetings

Volunteers who wish to serve all year have the opportunity to join the community planners. 

These volunteers chair planning committees and supervise festival booths. Planning meetings take place as work parties at the Executive Director’s home. They are on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.  During the work parties, a basic meal and tea is provided.

Volunteers may also be involved in the planning without attending meetings by contacting us to discuss specific projects or areas of interest.
