Best day for Volunteer Meetings?
Generally speaking, what are the best days for you to be able to attend volunteer meetings? It is extremely important that you be able to attend at least one meeting before the festival happens. This will allow us to fill you in on what you are supposed to be doing, and for you to get answers to any questions you may have.
Actual Festival Days you can volunteer
Please check off all the days you can actually physically be at the convention to volunteer. We know that not everyone can get all the days off. We also need help the day before and after the event to prep, pick up equipment, and to wrap up afterward, return rentals, get guests to the airport, etc.
