What do Volunteers do?

Our volunteers support all the activities that take place during the Festival. There are four major zones in our event:

  • Kid’s Zone
  • Food & Beverage
  • Music Zone
  • Arts & Crafts

We also offer free health screening on Saturday and Sunday and there is a 5k/10k run on Saturday. All volunteers receive a complimentary Festival T-shirt.

What to Expect

The roads will be closed downtown, so please find options for parking here.

Volunteers should come to Volta Space at 116 Person Street to sign in. We want to meet you, thank you, and provide your T-shirt and volunteer name tag.

When we respond to your sign-up email, we will give you the name of a contact person. They will provide your assignment for the day and answer any questions you have.

We will make sure you have copies of the map and any other handouts we think might be helpful. You will receive a voucher to get something to eat during the course of your shift.

Before you start, we suggest you walk around the Festival area to familiarize yourself with what’s going on where.

If you are able to help with set up or tear down – you have no idea how grateful we would be!
