Get involved – become a volunteer!

We’re looking for volunteers!

The event has continued to grow in size and so has the need for additional volunteers.  Volunteer roles include food servers, order takers, volunteer check-in, assisting with merchandise, and other cooking related needs. Volunteers receive an event t-shirt and a meal voucher in exchange for their hours of service – not to mention a lot of fun working with great people!
