IFest is a HUGE undertaking, and there’s only a handful of staff who plan and organize everything. So when the festival is actually here, we count on volunteers to help us actually pull off the event. We absolutely couldn't do it without you. We need all volunteers to commit to working at least one entire shift - most of which are 3 or 4 hours. And we hope you’ll do more than one, if possible. Volunteer times are available Friday, October 4 (for set up) & Saturday, October 5 for the festival. All total, we have about 250 shifts to be covered by volunteers!
