Just a quick heads-up that we still have a few more openings for our AgoraFest work exchange program this year. What is the work exchange program? I will tell you brothers and sisters.

Our work exchange program is especially designed for those people who would like to attend AgoraFest, but cannot afford it. In exchange for helping us run the festival a few hours each day, you will get free admission, a free meal plan ticket, and free housing in a 8-person bunkhouse located next to the kitchen near the main lodge. Note it is not necessary to dress plainly but if you look good in black go for it! You might want a change of work clothes of course.

Here’s how it works. You must be willing and commit to:

  • arrive on Thursday, September 22 by noon or soon thereafter to help with the festival preparations
  • assist festival attendees with parking and camping/RV setup as they arrive
  • work a 2-3 hour shift per day (typically kitchen help, workshop and entertainment assistance, or other work)
  • assist with the festival teardown on Sunday, September 25

The total number of hours you can expect to work during the festival is between 12-14 hours. The rest of the time, you are free to enjoy the festival however you would like.

If you are interested in helping, please email support (at) agorafest (dot) com, or just post here and someone will contact you right away – thanks for your help!
