Attendence at all CMA-run festivals requires the following:
* Community Service can be exempted under certain circumstances. Please see the Community Service page for more information + descriptions of types of service
Approval is required prior to being considered part of these teams, and availability can be limited.
Requests to join these teams are part of the "Community Service: 1st Choice" options on the Festival Registration Form.
**No one will be allowed to be part of the Setup or Teardown Crews without a current membership AND valid Festival Registration.**
Setup Crew is responsible for the complete onsite preparation of Festival.
Setup runs from Monday, April 13th 2020 through Wednesday, April 15th 2020. It will be run and managed by the Assistant Executive Director.
NOTE: Setup WORKEND is from Friday, April 10th 2020 - Sunday, April 12th 2020, and ALL MEMBERS are welcome to attend. This does not count as a replacement for your festival community service. The Ranch Manager will be handling the management of the Set Up WORKEND.
Those wishing to attend Setup (not just the Set Up Work-End) will need to select "Setup Crew" as their first-choice community service option during registration. Selection does not guarantee a spot! You will receive a separate email confirmation of your approval to be part of the Setup team, which will contain further instructions & information.
Setup acceptance concludes the same day registration closes (April 4th 2020).
If you are unable to participate in Setup after being approved, you will be expected to complete community service during festival.
Teardown Crew goes through after Festival and breaks down temporary community structures, doing a final tidying-up of the Land.
Teardown is on Monday, April 20th 2020 and will be run by the Executive Director.
NOTE: There is also a Teardown Workend on Friday, April 24th - Sunday, April 26th 2020, which is a separate event to which ALL MEMBERS are welcome to attend, but does not count as a replacement for your festival community service. The Ranch Team will be handling management of the Teardown WORKEND.
Those wishing to attend Teardown will need to select "Teardown Crew" as their first-choice community service option during registration. Selection does not guarantee a spot! You will receive a separate email confirmation of your approval to be part of the Teardown team, which will contain further instructions & information.
Teardown acceptance concludes the same day registration closes (April 4th 2020).

Some of our members like to show up the day before festival officially starts to get their camp set up and be settled when the events start occurring.
Wednesday Entry is an additional $25 to your registration.
Certain individuals are waived the Wednesday Entry fee, due to serving as sacred space coordinators, previous board members, vendors, and festival staff. Lifetime w/Event Membership holders are also exempt from the Wednesday Entry Fee.
If you are exempted from the Wednesday Fee and are NOT a vendor:
Our events are entirely volunteer run. If you have a ritual, a workshop, an event, or something else that you'd like to reserve space for or put on our Festival Schedule, please let us know!
Your submissions will get sent to our Festival Schedule Coordinator to make sure that all the details are just right.
Please Note: Not everyone is guaranteed to have their events/workshops approved for their first pick of location and time. Our Festival Schedule Coordinator will be working very hard to tetris everything together to make it work as well as possible!
We work very hard to accommodate the needs of our members. Our Work Exchange program is a way for us to offer substantially discounted festival registration in exchange for additional community service hours.
LAST MINUTE REQUESTS WILL BE DENIED.
Only current members of CMA are eligible for the Work Exchange Program.
All Work Exchange requests are subject to approval by the Board of Directors and requests are NOT guaranteed to be approved
Failure to complete your Work Exchange hours can result in denial of future Work Exchange opportunities and an invoice for the festival registration fees being placed on your account if you attended festival.
