TIMES OF SERVICE: The shift times vary each day depending on duties and event needs. The majority of volunteer shifts are 4 to 5 hours. PLEASE PLAN TO ARRIVE 20 MINUTES EARLY to allow sufficient time to for parking, checking in and a brief orientation.
VOLUNTEER DUTIES: The specific jobs and times will be available on the volunteer website. We need everything from bartenders to environmental experts (aka trash detail), from admissions to grounds patrol to security.

MORE THAN ONE SHIFT?: You can volunteer for as many shifts as you want, all on one day or both days. If you volunteer for more than one shift, make sure to give yourself a window for a break.

GENERAL RULES: A few simple rules we ask that you follow. Be on time. You must be sober for your volunteer shift. There is no consumption of alcoholic beverages allowed during your volunteer shift. All volunteer beverages must be paid for. To protect yourself, make sure another volunteer witnesses you paying for your beverage. No smoking on your shift while in your position.
