Festival Volunteering

Welcome!

We will post festival volunteer  slots later this spring.  If you want to volunteer in other ways, visit our main volunteer page.

We are proud of our volunteering tradition. The festival was started by volunteers in 2009.  It has relied on them ever since.  Volunteers erect a city in a matter of hours and return it to nature by the following dawn.  In between, they keep the city buzzing with life.  Our city has merchants, theaters, restaurants, pubs, and corporations.  It has doctors, lawyers, activists, authors, artists, and social workers.  There are churches, hotels, realtors and manufacturers.  All of these share a space for a day. 

Help us to make this year’s festival happen.  Give the community 2-4 hours.  Enjoy the music and scenes while you do.   

Volunteers receive drink tickets, an exclusive festival tee shirt and a goody bag.

Thank you!

User's Guides - Welcoming Groups

  • Prepare. There is no save-and-resume button. But you can return to edit an event.
  • Categories. Select at least one category in each group:
    • Event Type
    • Target Audience – who you designed event for
    • Welcoming Pages – where to publish the event
  • Venues / Organizers.  Enter the name of the organizer (your group) and the location (venue).
    • If it is already in the database, the calendar will populate your event with relevant contact and location information.
    • If you have to add a new organizer or venue, please fill in all the fields.  It will help others.
  • Online Events. Select “Online Event” as your Venue.
  • Recurring Events. Powerful, but a little confusing the first time:
    • To enter a meeting on the same date each month (e.g., the 5th), select “on the same day”.
    • To enter a meeting on the same day and/or week (e.g., 1st Monday), select “on a different day”.
