KICKOFF VOLUNTEERS


MINNESOTA HOMEGROWN KICKOFF
Friday through Sunday, May 30 - June 1, 2014

El Rancho Mañana, Richmond, MN

 

 

Kickoff Volunteers Needed

Did you know that Minnesota Homegrown Kickoff volunteers are automatically entered into a Saturday evening drawing for various prizes and free tickets to other festivals? They are! So, sign up below or check at the Gathering Place to find out about and sign up for volunteering at the Kickoff. Volunteers still pay their own admission, but they get a discount coupon for the shirt stand and get their name put into a drawing for prizes on Saturday night. The more slots your name is on the more chances you have.

To Sign Up: It is now too late to sign up pre-festival. Please find the schedule at the Gathering Place on site and sign up there starting Friday morning. Below is a list of the things we need help with. Email Executive Director Jed Malischke and ask him to fill in your name for any of the open times below.  And thank you.
