Volunteer Check-In

The following information is for volunteers who have a confirmed volunteer shift (received a confirmation e-mail after using our online sign up) on the day of the International Festival.


Please visit our website for more information regarding parking. We are expecting large crowds, so please plan to arrive early to find parking.


All volunteers need to check-in 15 minutes prior to the start of their shift at the Volunteer Check-in table. This check-in table will be located inside of the SAC food course next to the Main Information Booth. Volunteers who check-in late may not be guaranteed their volunteer shift and could be assigned to other duties. Volunteers will be required to sign a volunteer waiver upon arrival and will be given further instructions on where to go for their shift.


All confirmed volunteers will receive a free international festival t-shirt as inventory permits. All volunteers are required to change into this t-shirt after checking in so that they can be easily identified by festival staff and attendees. While we ask for t-shirt size upon sign up, we unfortunately cannot guarantee your size will be available upon check-in.


Depending on your assigned volunteer shift, you may be required to work outside and to stand for long periods of time. Please dress accordingly (e.g. comfortable shoes and pants). The weather will be unpredictable, so please prepare accordingly (e.g. rain jacket, warm coat, sun screen, sunglasses, etc.)


While we allow volunteers to sign up for specific volunteer shifts, it is possible that upon check-in you are assigned a different volunteer duty. While we do our best to accommodate volunteer requests, due to the large scale of these event we must prioritize volunteer needs the day of. All confirmed volunteer shifts are subject to change.
