Volunteer ShiftsWe ask that everyone contributes volunteer shifts over the duration of the festival. We will be dividing up the labor needed between all participants.
The volunteers shift options will consist of:*meal setup and/or cleanup*meal prep + cooking (in the kitchen)*event/space setup or cleanup*site maintenance/support
Closing + TidyingIn order to make sure no-one has left any items, and ensure that the spaces are ready to return to their regularly scheduled use, we are requiring ALL participants to participate in cleanup at the end of the festival. This will be the last thing we all do together before departing. We will complete this process by 5pm on Monday, Sept 2nd. Please plan your departure (carpools, flights, etc) to happen AFTER this time. Please don't be that person that says "I have to leave early to catch a flight."
