The Festival depends solely on volunteers throughout the year, but especially on the days of the Festival. These jobs are important and Festival cannot run without these jobs getting done!
We can use your help! To We have an online Sign Up Form where you can see the duties, times, and locations we need help with. We’ve tried to create a schedule where these jobs are for short periods of time so you can help for as little or as long as you can afford.
