The success of any large event such as this relies on the good will of volunteers. To give special recognition to our “Roadie” volunteers we have a Road to California pin with a “Roadie” bar that can only be earned by volunteering 4 hours or more. Each year “Roadies” will receive a year bar to add to their special pin.


Priority Registration for the following year is an option for those serving six hours or more as a volunteer.


All volunteer positions require that you be in good physical health, with the ability to stand and walk for the two-hour shift.  All volunteers must be 18 years or older for insurance requirements.  It is an important part of the show and we need your help.
