Oak Harbor Music Festival is seeking volunteers from the community.
Volunteers can help out in a variety of roles, from selling event merchandise to keeping the venue clean and safe, to serving guests in the beer and wine garden and more, according to organizers.
It takes a “mammoth effort” from the whole community, including hundreds of volunteers, to make the music festival work, event organizers said.
“Everyone who serves the festival, from the volunteers who work a shift on the weekend to the leadership team on the board of directors, serves at no pay,” Cynthia Mason, president of the board of directors, said.
“For all of us, it is truly a labor of love, inspired by the power of music,” she said.
“Every dollar we raise, through grants, donations, and festival sales, goes straight toward putting the best possible musical acts on stage, and toward providing the students of our county with opportunities to pursue their musical dreams.”
People interested in volunteering are asked to contact Gary Jandzinski, who runs operations at firstname.lastname@example.org, River Powers, who manages merchandise sales at email@example.com, Bill Walker, who will be running the beer and wine garden, at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.oakharborfestival.com/volunteer.
The Oak Harbor Music Festival is in its seventh year of bringing three days of free musical entertainment to Pioneer Way on Labor Day weekend.
The 2018 Festival kicks off Friday evening, Aug. 31, and runs through Sunday evening, Sept. 2.
