Join the PEX Posse!
Participation is a core value of our community. There are so many ways in which to do this at PEX Summer Festival and one of those ways is by Volunteering for teams and activities that build help our community and run this festival! We value your time as a GIFT, and we want to help you find a volunteer activity that will strengthen your ties to our community.
As a PEX Summer Festival Volunteer, you are a part of the PEX Posse! We hope and expect that all Volunteers actively understand and uphold the core PEX commitments and values of respectful community, positive living, and FUN.
Requirements for Work Exchange Volunteers
If you are interested in our work-exchange program for a reimbursed event ticket, there are a few types of volunteering commitments offered: Setup (arriving a few days before the festival to help us get ready), During Festival Work, and Breakdown (helping us breakdown and cleanup on Sunday and Monday).
Work Exchange Volunteers are expected to put in at least 16 hours of volunteering + 1 hour of volunteer orientation. Volunteers who come in for Setup will be expected to be available for the entire day they committed to working and are on site.
Both Work Exchange Volunteers and General Volunteers (those not getting reimbursed) are requested to fill out a Volunteer Application. If you have been accepted you will receive an invitation code for ticket purchase if you have not received one already. Tickets must be purchased prior to the event as a deposit, and we require the purchase confirmation code is sent to us before the festival begins. The face value of the ticket will be refunded to you after the full completion of your shifts and duties. (This does not include fees from Flavorus.) We will reimburse you within 2 weeks after the event.
If you do not complete your volunteer requirements, you will forfeit your ticket and the deposit will not be returned.
If you think you have what it takes to join our team of dedicated artists, thinkers, workers, and creators, please complete the Volunteer Application by May 15th. We have limited spots available and will be accepting work exchange volunteers on a rolling basis so fill out your applications ASAP!
