THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO GET INVOLVED!

There are many ways to get involved in Beardfest. Below you will find brief summaries of each, links to more information, instructions on how to sign up, what you get in exchange for your participation, and more. If you want to be involved with Beardfest beyond simply buying a ticket, skimming this page is a great place to start. 

VOLUNTEER!

Volunteers work in various roles and departments before, during, and after the festival. Signing up to volunteer allows festival goers to see the festival from an operational perspective and earn a nearly free ticket while helping the festival be as successful and enjoyable as possible for all staff, performers, and guests.

Regular Volunteers receive a nearly free weekend pass (minus the volunteer add-on), free GA parking, access to Volunteer Headquarters with snacks and water, and a Beardfest poster. Super Volunteers receive the same, plus free car camping (even if it's sold out!) and access to the VIP hospitality room with meals and drinks.

For more information on becoming a volunteer, visit the Volunteer page. Volunteer sign-up deadline TBA. To become a volunteer, click the link below to purchase a standard full weekend Beardfest ticket, and the volunteer add-on deposit. Full details will be provided in the check out process. .

The Street Team gets out to popular locations and events to promote the festival. Street Teamers spread the word through hanging up posters and handing out flyers. 

Street Teamers receive a nearly free weekend pass (minus the Street Team add-on),  GA parking/camping, and a free Beardfest poster.

LEAD A WORKSHOP!

The Workshops Department houses Beardfest's educational events, hosted by passionate facilitators, artists, seekers, and experts in their areas of interest. Some of the goals of this department are to expand participants' world-views, connect like-minded community members, provide safe spaces for exploration, introduce new skills, and get people to move their bodies with big smiles on their faces! Historically, workshops run the gamut of mind, body, and spirit and are encouraged to have a participatory aspect. They are for adults, children, and families.

HOST A THEME CAMP!

Theme camps are a pre-planned group of people camping together with a collective mission to provide a FREE unique experience or environment to the community of Beardfest.  Theme camps might offer their own pre-planned events as an additional/alternative activity for Beardfest participants to attend or simply provide a common area for folks to gather and enjoy the space.  Theme Camps (and individuals) are encouraged to curate whatever vibe most excites them--sky is the limit (with the exception of serving alcohol or prepared meals (prepackaged snacks are ok), which we cannot allow due to conflicts with our vendors and insurance).

For more information on hosting theme camps, visit the Host a Theme Camp page. To apply to host a theme camp, click the link below. Theme Camp application deadline is May 8, 2024.
