General Questions

We love our volunteers and couldn’t run the festival without them!

Visit the new volunteer page and fill out the application and we will get back to you ASAP.  Remember that there are only a select number of individuals that can fill the available positions

We try as hard as we can to have the gates open at 11 AM.  There is lots to do to put on a one day festival and at times we can run a little behind schedule.  If there is a delay beyond our control, we will spread the word as quickly as we can.
