Attention Freedom Fighters!

Three easy steps, then you are well on your way to snagging one of those prized FloydFest volunteer spots:

1) Read these details below and be sure you are clear on all requirements. Email volunteers@atwprodutions.com with any questions.

2) Fill out the online application in its entirety and select your 1st choice shift schedule. Please select at LEAST one night shift and a TOTAL OF FIVE SHIFTS to total 20 hours of volunteer work.

3) Pay the $20 application processing fee.

VOLUNTEER QUALIFICATIONS

- To work in any ABC areas of the festival, you must be 21 years old or older.
- Identification will be checked and age will be verified when you come to Volunteer Check-in to get your credentials.
