Get Involved

The Festival can’t happen without the help of volunteers. We rely on volunteers to help with all aspects of the Festival, from office tasks to ushering to on-site support during events.

The commitment can be as little as 4 hours and you choose your volunteer task based on your availability and interests. See the description of our various volunteering opportunities below.

Many of these opportunities occur only during the summer festival, but volunteers are also needed to help with various activities throughout the year.

How to Volunteer

Complete the volunteer application below. This is a brief survey to collect information on how to contact you, your interests, and your past experience with the festival. You will then be contacted via email to arrange a time to volunteer.
