We have many ways you can help make this event a success:
• Morning Set Up: setting up tents, tables and chairs; making sure everything is in place and looks good before the public arrives• Traffic Control: in order to create a pedestrian-only zone along 17 blocks of Commercial Drive we need to barricade the streets, and we need people to make sure no cars get through! While not the most exciting job, it is the most important!• Volunteer Tent Attendants: Help manage volunteer check in, provide security for volunteers' belongings, make sure the tent is well-stocked with snacks!• Stage Crew: assists the stage managers at our live music stages; requires previous stage tech experience• Green Room Attendants: provides security at artist green rooms, makes sure the room is tidy, hospitality is stocked up• Piazza Hosts: 5 piazzas are placed along Commercial Drive, giving attendees a place to sit, eat, and relax.
