Cheat Festival Lead Volunteer Positions:

We have openings for Lead Volunteer Coordinators as well as leadership and assistant positions before, during and after the festival. Below are some of the areas where we are looking for committed volunteer help and where you can really impact the festival. Please contact the Festival Director at to see if one of these positions is a fit good for 

  • Gate Managers (Day Of  Position)
  • Pre-Festival Office Assistants
  • Post-Festival Office Assistants

Volunteer coordinators help to create many aspects of the festival; from organizing our races to running the volunteer café. Coordinating is a great way to play a deeper role in Cheat Fest and to work behind the scenes with an amazing group of people. Our volunteer coordinators truly make the festival possible.
