Our volunteers are invaluable to the festival, and we simply couldn’t do it without you! To show our appreciation, your name will be entered into the drawing for each shift you sign in for at the festival. Drawings will take place after each shift allowing winners to take home the prizes at the end of each shift.


This drawing is made possible by the generosity of many local businesses in our community, so please support the businesses that support the festival!


Big and small groups of volunteers welcomed

School, corporate, church and other Volunteer Group Coordinators contact us to schedule your group for the same date and time for our two day spring festival. By signing up early we will do our best to accommodate your volunteers to stay together during the time you share with us. We appreciate Volunteer Group Coordinators for your dedication.

POINT is a collaborative volunteer platform that connects communities with local causes.


  • You can download POINT’s volunteering app in the App Store or Google Play.

  • Just search “POINT”.  Super easy. (It’s the orange one.)

  • No smartphone? No problem. Sign up using the web app.


How do I sign up for POINT? Download the app at, the App Store, or Google Play. Create a new account. Use your PERSONAL EMAIL (2 reasons: charities are blocked from emailing your school email, and this way if you change jobs you can take POINT with you). Enter all the necessary information. This is just like filling out a permission slip–charities need this info from you in order to let you volunteer with their organization. Follow causes that you care about. Aka–what do you want to get involved in? Think: ending homelessness, tackling climate change, or helping animals, etc. Join an Organization. Head to the causes page to accept (or decline) any invitations from organizations or find organizations that you might be interested in. Sign up. Find an event and sign up by tapping “go”
