We'd love for you to join our family, too! We are looking for motivated individuals to trade their time for a free ticket to the festival by donating 9 hours of volunteering. We are a tightly woven group of individuals that come together annually to throw the biggest party of the year, and we'd love to have you join us. Completing the minimum number of hours of work earns you free entrance in to the festival a day earlier, allowing you to enjoy an extra night of camping and celebration.

With plenty of activities for adults and kids, your whole family will have a blast spending your weekend with us. Earlybird tickets are ON SALE NOW (prices go up after May 4). Tickets are available for purchase through our website ( or at Hollyloft Ski & Bike and Reg Lenna Center For The Arts in Jamestown, Terrapin Station Buffalo, or Grasshopper in Erie.
