The magic that is a Wisteria event would not be possible without the hard work of our work barter staff. We offer work barter placements in many event areas, including Hestia’s Hearth Kitchen, Caffeina’s Cosmic Cafe, First Aid and Security Team (FAST), the Gate House, Facilities, and more.

Wisteria offers a work barter program for free entry into an event. As a work barter participant, you also receive first choice of open camping spots, free early entry, and other perks. In exchange, we ask work barter volunteers to arrive the day or evening before events begin, show up on time for their 4 to 5 hour daily shifts, and stay through the last day of the event. While the volunteer experience is a commitment, it also provides a deeper connection with the community and the opportunity to be part of a great team facilitating a fantastic festival experience. 

If you have any questions regarding work barter commitment, contact us at for more information.

In addition to work barter at events, Wisteria also hosts occasional work weekends throughout the year. Don’t let the name fool you, these are the most fun some of us have all year!

Please note that this year we require separate applications for each event that you would like to volunteer for. By completing and submitting a work barter application you agree to the requirements listed in the application. If you have any questions, please send us your questions at
