Volunteers are the backbone of the festival. Without you, GRIZFEST would not take place!

Join the friendly, helpful volunteers who make this festival work.  Every year our enthusiastic volunteers donate many hours of their time to guarantee a successful festival.  Volunteers can take pride in our community by being a part of GRIZFEST and in return they will have a good time, make new friends and help make GRIZFEST a memorable experience for all those who attend.
