Okanogan Family Barter Faire would not be possible without our
Volunteers! Volunteering with the Barter Faire is a wonderful
opportunity to meet like-minded individuals, learn new things and
contribute to the success of the Faire we all love. There is also the
potential to earn Faire membership hours, meals during Faire and an
exclusive Faire volunteer T-shirt.

does not automatically equal an entry ticket. Volunteering for an entry
ticket typically applies to coordinators and volunteers who have met a
minimum hour requirement prior to Faire.If you would like to be considered as a volunteer, please fill out this form
