Welcome to the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Volunteer Website
New Festival Dates: August 2nd, 3rd, 4th 2013
Our volunteers do a variety of tasks that make our festival possible, from parking the patrons, taking tickets, checking in other volunteers and performers, aiding our camping patrons, providing safety and security, to preparing food for our volunteers and/or patrons.
For a small fee of $14 ($20 after July 15th) , a volunteer gets access to the festival as well as camping and staff meals provided two times a day from the day they start their responsibilities. Being a volunteer is a great way to meet a community of other like-minded individuals, where friendships and memories are made and remembered for a lifetime.
The festival is three days and we expect our volunteers to be able to work all three days. Most volunteers will need to work 6 to 7 hours each day for a total commitment of 18 to 20 hours. We do have a small number of pre-festival crews that require a substantially heavier time commitment for the privilege of not working during the festival. Check the required commitment of a crew carefully before volunteering. All festival volunteers are expected to work a full shift on Sunday. Exceptions must be worked out with your crew chief prior to the start of the festival.
T-shirts are required by most crews during shifts. A payment of $12.00 is needed for the t-shirt. Payment for the t-shirt and the volunteer fee are due when your volunteer application is approved. Log on to this site and select the Buy T-Shirt menu option. Credit Card or PayPal is accepted.
We have an excellent kitchen where vegetarians and vegans are well cared for. Breakfast meats (cooked elsewhere) are offered to our volunteers for breakfast. Drinks and snacks are available all day.
We have a limited number of pre-festival volunteer positions. Returning volunteers fill many of these positions. Tasks involve site set up, site kitchen operations, early parking, security and ticketing. If you think you qualify to fill one of these positions, use the comment section of the application.
We are unfortunately not able to accept volunteers for less than the full three-day commitment.
