~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Individual Volunteers are ALWAYS needed as well! We need at least 50 more Volunteers than we had last year. There are MANY other areas where Volunteers are needed. These are ideal for individuals and groups that want to help but are not trying to raise funds for a chosen charity or organization. These Volunteer opportunities range from tending the bonfires to serving tea at the Afternoon Tea, from being a stage hand for one or more of our 5 stages to being part of the team that controls traffic flow and parking, from helping at the Wine Tasting to selling concessions or souvenirs, from helping manage our camping/RV area to helping with the Tea Dueling or the Beer Tasting, etc.
There are also many Volunteer opportunities prior to the event for anyone who wants/needs to earn additional passes for friends or family … or if you just like to build stuff! EVERY WEEKEND is a Work Weekend after September 1st.
ALL individual Volunteers and Volunteer Teams must complete the Volunteer Application process.If you do not complete your 6 hour commitment you will be required to pay for your admission to the event. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Contact:
