Volunteer Info


We are always looking for volunteers! 

There are lots of duties available, check out the list below and send us an email with questions or interest! info@shortrun.org


Posterers – we will provide you with posters, fliers, tape, and a staple gun. You will poster poles and community bulletins in your own neighborhood. Also approach willing businesses with good street-facing windows.

Research – help us research and find contact info for possible sponsorship, grants, community relations, etc.

Work parties – this could be anything from stapling promo zines, screen printing, framing art to making badges.

Event Day Volunteers Needed:

Set-up – we need help setting up the tables and chairs, putting up signage, putting out a-boards, setting up bake sale and merch tables, name buttons, fliers, etc… also help exhibitors find their assigned tables.

Take-Down – we need help tearing down the show, putting tables away, taking down all signage, and sweeping up.

Greeters – we need 2 people to work the doors, hand out programs, keep track of attendance with a “clicker”, direct people, answer questions.

Runners – often the cashiers will need more change, or a performer needs an extension cord, or a drink of water, or who knows! You will be the problem-solver and work closely with the AV Tech and the Short Run organizers.

Bake Sale & Merch Table Cashiers – sell products to attendees, keep track of inventory, make coffee, answer questions like, “where’s the bathroom?”, “where’s the closest atm?” etc…(you will be provided with all the answers).

Audio-Visual Technician – be our “save the day” AV person by setting up projector and laptops, or speakers and sound machines. Help performers and artists get set up for their performance, whatever that might entail.

Drivers – There are always a lot of stuff to shuttle to the venue on festival day.  You will help us shuttle baked goods from donors, pick up ice, and any other items that need to arrive on the day of the festival.
