Volunteering and Bartering

No event can be a success without the contributions of the people who make the event go. To help us provide the best possible event, we also offer a way for attendees to help work to help cover partial or whole gate pass amounts. Each of these areas have conditions that are different. We need to know your arrival time and day in order to schedule your work shifts. Scheduling will not be posted until the day before the event and is subject to change throughout the event, as per the event needs. We will be as flexible as we can, please be flexible with us šŸ˜€Ā
