My bestie is also volunteering. Can you coordinate my shift with his or hers?

What if I have to cancel?

I have a special skill set to offer, how can I best let you know?

Is transportation or accommodation provided?
No. All volunteers are responsible for their own transportation to and from the festival. Feel free to purchase a camping spot and stay the weekend with us!

I already bought a ticket, but I would still like to help out for a few hours. Can I do that?
Yes! Please use the same name and/or email you used to purchase your ticket and be ready to sign up for a minimum of 4 hours for a shift.

When will I get my refund?
Refunds will be honored after PeteFest weekend and shifts have been checked in for. Up to 5 business days after the event. If you register to volunteer, but don’t show up for your shift: no refund. You may also consider donating all or a portion of our refund back to The Pete Foundation for a great non-profit cause (that’s also tax deductible!)
