Supporting the Festival


Time is just as valuable as money in putting together a free community event of this scale.

Join the more than 100 volunteers who assist with set-up and tear-down, clean-up, traffic management, button and T-shirt sales, hospitality, and the thousands of details that go into making the Festival run smoothly.

Anyone who volunteers at least four hours gets a parking pass for the volunteer lot.


Did we mention that this event typically attracts a crowd?! Vendors of food, drink, and other goodies can be virtually assured of a brisk pace of business all weekend long. A well-fed and well-hydrated crowd is a happy crowd! See our vendor page for more information.
