Hey friends! Want to be part of the Rooster Walk Family? We’re looking for volunteers to join our team!

We want the Rooster Walk Music Festival to run as smoothly as possible and to provide a great experience for everyone involved. Our volunteers play a big part in helping to make that happen! We could not put on this event without people like you

There are FOUR types of Rooster Walk volunteers:

  • Pop’s Farm Work Weekend Volunteer (March 4-5 & April 22-23, 2023)
  • Standard Festival Volunteer (May 25-28, 2023)
  • Festival Build (Pre-Fest) Volunteer (May 20-24, 2023)
  • Festival Breakdown (Post-Fest) Volunteer (May 29-30, 2023)

You can learn about each volunteer category and the details of our volunteer program, including the different job descriptions in the Volunteer Program Outline.

Volunteer Deposits

A refundable $50 volunteer deposit is required of all Volunteers.

Purchase your deposit here (it’s a ticket option under General Admission Tickets). Good-standing volunteers from RW12 (2022) have been sent an email on how to waive the deposit.


Volunteers who complete the assigned shifts will earn free 4-day General Admission for one to the entire festival, plus an official volunteer t-shirt, on-site primitive tent camping, and off-site parking.

Interested in working additional shifts for extra perks? Have a purchased ticket already, but want to volunteer? Let us know in the comments section of the Volunteer Application, and we will be in touch.

Have questions?

First, review the Volunteer Program Outline. If you still have questions after reading this, email and we’ll get back to ya!

Thank you so much for helping our nonprofit put on fun events and give back to the community!

Some words from our Rooster Walk Volunteers

I will be there whenever you need me, ready to work at that beautiful farm with all the beautiful people. Memories of my last time there have carried me through the winter. Volunteering is what’s up. Thanks for being. –Robin

Best time ever! —Tom

Nothing finer than spending a day with friends volunteering at Pop’s Farm. —Sherri

I won tickets, but I passed them on to a friend because I love my volunteer team! Volunteering is one of my favorite parts of Rooster Walk. —Adrian

I’ve done this all 12 years. This will be #13. It’s the best way to go if you are on a budget, and you will join a huge big fun family. —Sarah
