We have a variety of volunteer opportunities in the days leading up to the festival, during the festival on Saturday, and with teardown on Sunday and Monday. Without volunteer assistance, the festival would not happen. We sincerely thank you in advance for offering to lend a hand. If you are involved with a group looking for volunteer hours, please contact us! We have several areas where groups or family members can work together.  Many hands make work light.
