Be An Active Participant!

There are many ways to help at AgoraFest, but, since AgoraFest is first and foremost a participatory festival, we encourage you to get involved by doing a workshop or seminar, providing a useful good or service, and/or entertaining each other with your music, song, dance, or other talents. The most important way you can help is to help make AgoraFest even more amazing!

Every festival of course is the result of many people’s creative efforts coming together to build an unforgettable event. If you are inspired to help, please contact the festival organizers and tell us about your idea – we’d love to hear it!

Is there a work exchange program?

Yes! Our work exchange program is 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.

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

  • arrive on Thursday, September 22 by noon 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 is between 12-14 hours. The rest of the time, you are free to enjoy the festival however you would like.

We only have eight (8) of these positions available, and preference is given to those who would otherwise find it financially difficult to attend AgoraFest.  So, if you are interested in being a member of the work exchange team, please email support (at) agorafest (dot) com.
