The Oly Old Time Festival is a completely volunteer-run organization. All proceeds go directly to putting on the festival, supporting the musicians and instructors, and maintaining affordable ticket prices.
During the festival we especially need volunteers to help with set up and decorating, ticket and welcome table, and food delivery service.
All volunteer shifts are 3 hours and all volunteers receive a free weekend pass (ticket) to the event.
Here’s how to sign up to volunteer:
Step 1: Read the Volunteer Descriptions
Step 2: Sign up for shifts
Once you have read the descriptions and know which shift you are interested in, use our SignUp.com invitation to sign up for your preferred shift(s):

You will need to provide both an email address and phone number when signing up, as well as your preferred method for submitting your deposit (see step 3). You are welcome to sign up with a buddy, but you must each sign up for your own shifts so that we have contact info for everyone, and we are sure your shift is saved for you.
Step 3: Make a deposit (We are in process of setting this up, thank you for your patience!) You can still sign up for a volunteer slot to secure your slot.
We ask all volunteers to place a refundable deposit of $40, the advance price of a weekend pass wristband. If you complete your shift (or let us know in advance if you need to cancel), this will be refunded to you. Deposits can be made either ELECTRONICALLY (via Paypal) or by CHECK (through the mail). If you indicate at sign up that you prefer to use Paypal, you will receive an invoice from us via e-mail. If you indicate that you prefer to pay by check, we will send you a follow up e-mail with the address.
Step 4: Volunteer!
Come to the Gathering and do your shift(s). Please arrive 10-15 minutes early so that you have time to learn how to do your job. When you arrive, check in at the front door of either the South Bay Grange or First Christian Church, depending on where your shift is located.
Step 5: Get your refund
After the Oly Old Time Festival is over, you’ll get your deposit back. If you mailed us a check, we will contact you about shredding or returning it to you.
