Volunteers Needed

We can't do this without you!

The Sundance Stompede requires an army of volunteers, and we'd love to have your help! Vounteering is FUN and gives you the satisfaction of helping to create this magical weekend.

Most positions require no previous experience or training. Volunteers receive free admission to the event they are volunteering for, or an entire weekend pass with any four or more shifts.
