    An event of this magnitude does not exist without a large number of volunteers (and three hours gets you into the Festival free for a day!). Before the event begins we need volunteers to help put up advertising signs, and distribute flyers. Other pre-festival volunteers are needed to transport our supplies from Gerry, set up the site with chairs, tables, and signs. During the festivities we need volunteers to help with the admission gate, the info center, and Festival sales booths such as the Gift Shop, Loppis and Hemslöjdsbutik and to help with keeping the Festival neat and clean. We also need people on Sunday evening taking down the Festival.

    If you would like to volunteer, please contact:
