Festival Volunteers

Either before, during, or after, we always need volunteers.  We’ve listed a few of our volunteer opportunities.  

If you’re interested in helping with our Pre-Festival needs please email us.  Otherwise, we’ll post a link to our volunteer sign-up page 2-3 weeks prior to the festival.

Collect several neat and interesting prizes from businesses and individuals.

Festival Set-up

Begins late afternoon or early evening the day before (Friday) the Festival.  Be prepared to haul boxes and equipment, set up tables, chairs & keyboards, put signage up, etc.

Coordination Meeting @ 7:30 a.m.  
Room Helpers are required to attend a coordination meeting with all of the clinicians on festival Saturday.  This meeting is critical in helping room helpers understand their job.  Clinicians and room helpers will coordinate a plan for working together.  Check-in at the front desk first.
