Welcome! - Thank you for your interest in volunteering at this year’s festival. We are excited that you will be a part of this annual fun-filled event.   

Time Commitment - We have a variety of shifts available, most lasting 3 or 4 hours.  We are always short on volunteers, so please consider signing up for multiple shifts. We often move our volunteers around during the day as needs change, so you will probably get a variety of experience!  

Volunteer Benefits - You are providing a great service to the community by providing the assistance it takes to keep the festival running.  As a volunteer, you can have a huge impact on the enjoyment of our guests and the success of the event. All volunteers will receive a ticket for a free hot dog at the WCAF food booth each day that they work.  Free water is available at all times when volunteering simply by visiting the hot dog stand.
