All adults who purchase a Full Event registration are required to do (at least) two hours of community service at the event. During the registration process, you'll be required to choose two Community Service options. You are not guaraunteed to get your first choice community service option or general time slot, but we do try very hard to accomodate everyone. Check out the descriptions of the different options below.
Options marked with * can require additional training, time commitments, or special approval. The description will let you know the details.
Join the team on the bridge! You will greet attendees as they cross the infamous Troll Bridge into the heart of the festival, pass along important last-minute information about safety and site conditions, and have a generally great time!
Places are limited for this community service position.
It takes a lot of hard work to make our Revel Fires sacred and safe. This team plans and prepares the main fire ring during the day and tends and feeds the fires during the burn at night. The energy you use in building and tending the fires makes a circuit of energy between the tenders, the drummers, the dancers, and the festival community.
Are you experienced in Fire Performance Safety? Join the team to help ensure we've got enough good spotters to cover all those who want to perform. You'll get to be front and center to help make sure our Fire Performers stay safe. Shifts will be 2-hr slots after dark only, and will require good shoes and full-coverage clothing.
To ensure that our team has the necessary experience, all volunteers require approval of the Safety Services Manager.
As part of the Front Gate Team, you will help in directing the flow of check-in for festival. Tasks include meeting and greeting people as they enter, making sure they check in properly, directing cars to the parking lot with parking passes, and keeping track of vehicles and owners for security purposes.
People willing to take overnight shifts for this team are especially desired
Come serve your community as a Guardian! We walk the property to promote physical and spiritual safety during festival. Enjoy delicious coffee, silly meetings, inside jokes, radio hijinks, and sometimes, sometimes... even a chance to save the day! (No promises)
Good shoes + Full-Coverage clothing are required On-Shift, and new volunteers will need to attend Guardian 101 Training.
No Dinosaurs, Please.
Join the team at Matthew's Self Healing Station! We need volunteers to assist with our self-serve First Aid station, helping folks with things like minor injuries, bug bites, sunburn, or overheating. There will be tasty cookies, plenty of laughs, camaraderie, and of course, chicken jokes.
First Aid training is not required, however, wearing Full-Coverage clothing on shift is very much required.
