Official Volunteering

Volunteers are needed in all areas including initial set up, working with the bands, food vendors, children's area, and event hospitality. Shifts are generally 3-4 hours long and will be scheduled to allow plenty of time to enjoy the event 'off-duty.' Volunteers receive special passes for premium parking and hospitality area. If volunteers wish to team up on shifts, please indicate team members when signing up. Experience with festivals or special-events is helpful but not required.
