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 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.
Volunteering at Barter Faire 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.
We have three work party volunteer opportunities the three weekends leading up to Faire.
At Faire we have limited opportunities for new volunteers and each area coordinator does their own recruiting.
If you’ve volunteered in the past, please reach out to your area coordinator. If you are new to volunteering at Faire, please come as an attendee this year and ask any of our coordinators about volunteering for next year’s Faire.
During the event, for those looking to lend a helping hand, you can always stop by the Volunteer Bus, near the Gate, and find out about volunteer opportunities available for the day.
