Home Making of the Festival Festival Committee
Festival Committee

Photo by Ernst Ulrich SchaferOver a hundred people are involved in the making of the Irrigation Festival and every one of those people is a volunteer. Volunteer activities range from large commitments such as being on the Board of Directors and planning and coordinating the festival events, to small commitments such as helping to setup or decorate an event.

Many of the events have volunteer needs. If you are interested in volunteering for a particular event you can learn more about the event by going to that page. Additional volunteering needs can be found on the Volunteer! Webpage.
