volunteer for Maplewoodstock 2024

Our annual festival would not be possible without several dozen volunteers who commit from an hour or so to a full weekend of on-site work.

Our volunteer needs largely fall into several buckets:

  • Taking shifts in the weeks leading up to the festival to help sell our merch in sidewalk sales;
  • Showing up on our Friday set-up and Saturday morning load-in to help direct traffic, orient vendors, mark out spaces, hang signs, etc.
  • Staffing the Beer Garden in partnership with our local colleagues at the South Orange Elk’s Lodge # 1154 (if over 21 and appropriately trained).

Other longer-horizon volunteer opportunities could include grant writing/applying, fund raising, merch design and production, graphic design, etc.

Every volunteer (regardless of position) is required to sign a waiver stipulating they are aware that the activities may include some light manual labor, interaction with festival attendees, being in close proximity to heavy stage and musical equipment, selling merchandise (and in some cases selling alcoholic beverages for which the Volunteer must be 21 years of age or older), and other tasks.

On-site volunteers will be given wristbands to identify themselves to our attendees and fellow volunteers and support staff.  And, on-site volunteers (during the typically hot and sunny festival weekend) are welcome to water and shade in our Volunteer Tent adjacent to the stage (where volunteers will have already checked in).

We welcome youthful volunteers … and minors are required to have a parental or guardian co-sign.
