Information about Volunteering

This is an outdoor event, and all volunteers should be prepared to work in ANY kind of weather. Volunteers must be a minimum of 12 years of age. Volunteers under the age of 18 must submit a signed, manual Waiver to complete their registration. Volunteers on Festival Day receive: pizza lunch and snacks, water, a volunteer T-shirt, and following the Festival, there will be a volunteer appreciation bbq where you can mingle with other volunteers and win prizes.
