The festival could not be staged without the tremendous contributions of time and energy provided by the more than 500 volunteers involved each year. Each volunteer is expected to work a minimum of four hours during the festival and there are two and four-hour shifts, depending on the task.
In addition to having the satisfaction of being a part of making this special event happen, volunteers receive a festival t-shirt, an invitation to the Volunteer and Performer Party held on Saturday night of the festival, access to the festival green rooms and a regular newsletter featuring information about invited performers and special activities.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer member of the festival team, we would love to hear from you.
