Volunteer at Wildflower!

Wildflower! would not be possible without the help of more than 1,500 community-minded volunteers. In short, they ARE Wildflower! Our Volunteer Program is a nationally recognized, award-winning effort that’s been modeled by other events and offers individuals and organizations an opportunity to give back to the community.

So, who can volunteer?

Anyone or any organization is eligible, from individuals who just love music and the camaraderie, to civic,social organizations, church, professional and corporate groups. All Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.

RockStar Treatment

In exchange for their services our volunteers receive a “Volunteer T-shirt”, and two Single Day General Admission Tickets (one to be used to get into the festival to volunteer). For each additional volunteer shift worked, volunteers receive an additional Single Day Ticket.

Shifts & Duties

Shifts are approximately four hours and duties include greeting guests, scanning tickets, handing out programs, information booth and access control.
