Welcome to the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Volunteer Website
The 2020 Festival has been cancelled
Our deep feeling for of all of you has never been so profound as we find
ourselves in these troubling times, all treading water together, but each in our own pool. We may be
doing that for some time but we can still communicate with each other,
encourage, support and help each other until such time we can gather the tribe
all together on dry land once more.
In that spirit, we plan to present the
FALCON RIDGE 2020 SHARE & SHELTER IN PLACE FEST.
Where: Online Everywhere we can do it.
When: Starting Thurs July 30, going each day of the 2020 fest dates thru Sun
Aug 2 and archived for replay after that.
And to be shared: With your Fest Friends & our fest CommUNITY, while safe
in your own space & strong in all of our hearts.
The plan for our VIRTUAL FRFF will include day by day
programming, from Thursday Pre-Fest Tastings, the Grassy Hill Emerging Artist
Showcase and all of our confirmed artists in one way or another, along with
some archival footage, special messages from long time vendors, radio sponsors,
dancers, campers, former artists and fest friends of all stripe.
We will take down the TICKET ORDER page shortly and
formulate a written policy for ticketholders. For all volunteers and vendors
Your 2020 tickets and other fees will be honored at the next festival.
Working on all of this now, hope you are all well and
Volunteer Contact Information:
Our volunteers do a variety of tasks that make our festival possible, from parking the patrons, taking tickets, checking in other volunteers and performers, aiding our camping patrons, providing safety and security, to preparing food for our volunteers and/or patrons.
For a small fee a volunteer gets access to the festival as well as camping and staff meals provided two times a day from the day they start their responsibilities. Being a volunteer is a great way to meet a community of other like-minded individuals, where friendships and memories are made and remembered for a lifetime.
The festival is three days and we expect our volunteers to be able to work all three days. Most volunteers will need to work 6 to 7 hours each day for a total commitment of 18 to 20 hours. We do have a small number of pre-festival crews that require a substantially heavier time commitment for the privilege of not working during the festival. Check the required commitment of a crew carefully before volunteering. All festival volunteers are expected to work a full shift on Sunday. Exceptions must be worked out with your crew chief prior to the start of the festival.
T-shirts are required by most crews during shifts. A payment is needed for the t-shirt. Payment for the t-shirt and the volunteer fee are due when your volunteer application is approved. Log on to this site and select the Buy T-Shirt menu option. Credit Card or PayPal is accepted.
We have an excellent kitchen where vegetarians and vegans are well cared for. Breakfast meats are offered to our volunteers for breakfast. Drinks and snacks are available all day.
We have a limited number of pre-festival volunteer positions. Returning volunteers fill many of these positions. Tasks involve site set up, site kitchen operations, early parking, security and ticketing. If you think you qualify to fill one of these positions, use the comment section of the application.
We are unfortunately not able to accept volunteers for less than the full three-day commitment.
Staff T-Shirt: $15 each
