Volunteer sign-up is quick and easy; fill out the online form found here, or contact to reserve your spot. EVERY shift worked gets you one free general admission ticket to this year’s Festival, and an entry to win a $100 visa gift card…not to mention all of the great friendships and experiences you will form!
