The festival would not be able to happen without our dedicated volunteers.  Every event at the festival has a volunteer committee that oversees the event.   No events takes place without a volunteer chair and committee to make sure it can happen.   If you have an idea for an activity or event that you would like to see take place at the festival, why not volunteer to make it happen.
