Volunteering: It’s your ticket into Doe Bay Fest!

Doe Bay Fest is sold out but there is still an excellent way for you to be able to attend the event. COME VOLUNTEER! This special opportunity allows for you to trade the cost of the ticket and camping (or just a ticket if you don’t need camping) in exchange for roughly 6-12 hours of festival work (work hours vary depending on option you choose). If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact Heather at

Hurry, positions fill fast. This is a great way for people that missed buying tickets before they sold out to still get in on the fun! And for those of you that have already purchased tickets – there is an option to get them refunded and volunteer instead!
