Hello Volunteers!

I hope everyone that has seen my previous e-mail has marked down the festival dates on their calendar. If you have any questions please e-mail me anytime. We are gearing up here at the festival office so please check your emails in June as I will be sending out confirmation for your crew placement and information packages. Thank you for your patience.

To those who are awaiting confirmation, please allow this e-mail to be official confirmation you have been accepted as a volunteer.  I will be in contact in June with crew placements and information packages. 
In the meantime save the dates on your calendar and invite your friends to volunteer as well.

Please e-mail me if you are from the area and willing to put in extra time supporting us by putting up posters.

Thank you all for applying to the 26th Annual ROOTSandBLUES festival! This festival would not happen with out the support of our wonderful volunteers so thank you!

Water Bottles:
We would like to remind all of our volunteers to bring your own water bottle (BYOWB). The festival will not have plastic water bottles or plastic cups available on site to become more sustainable for the environment. Water stations will be available during set up and tear down week as well as over the festival weekend. Be environmentally friendly, keep hydrated and BYOWB!
Volunteer Camping:
The festival is offering weekend tent camping to volunteers for the discounted rate of $30 (all weekend). Volunteers can reserve and pay for a volunteer camping spot by calling 250-833-4096 or stopping by the festival's office.
