Event Work Barter

Event Work Barter

The magic that is a Wisteria event would not be possible without the generous assistance of our volunteers in food service, first aid, security, and many other departments.

This year, Wisteria is offering an extremely limited amount of work barter slots for Appalachian Summer Solstice and Autumn FiresWork barter applications for Appalachian Summer Solstice are due by May 15th, 2021 and applications for Autumn Fires are due by September 1st, 2021.

Wisteria offers a work barter program for free entry into an event. As a volunteer, you also receive first choice of 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. Apply here to become a work barter volunteer.

If you don’t want to make the work barter commitment but still wish to lend a hand for a few hours during an event, we’d welcome your help. Contact Jess at volunteer@wisteria.org 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!
