CBMF is a volunteer-run festival and we need your help to make it happen. Please consider signing up do to some volunteer work for us! It is scientifically proven that volunteers have more fun than regular festival-goers. Applications open March 15th 2019, with a survey that helps us fit your skills to our committees. The deadline for applications is May 8th 2019, and that’s when we’ll begin scheduling folks. If you’re interested in volunteering but that date has passed, we can likely still find a spot for you, so don’t hesitate to apply!
