Deconstuction Crew

Tearing down Mainstage

Sure, people sign up for the Deconstruction Crew, and they SAY they will be there bright and early Monday morning to help us pack it all out…but then, they bust their humps setting up Hempfest, and enjoying Hempfest, and partying each night after Hempfest…and by golly they are exhausted!

 …and so we have this issue every year of a tired skeleton crew of Hardcore volunteers trying to deconstruct the world’s largest Protestival, load out 6 stages, pack up all that equipment, guide the trucks safely into and out of these 3 beautiful waterfront city parks…you get the picture- we need your help!

Login to:        https://signup.hempfest.org

and sign up for some Decon shifts here;

And then please show up to help us return the Parks to the condition of

“better than we found ‘em!”

    I would totally help out if I wasn’t stuck running some people up to the airport. Although if this is an on going issue, it will get worse as Hempfest grows under new Rec laws. Maybe it might be worth it to the marketing dept to offer up a major AD spot to a local pizza joint to feed the decon crew. I am unfamiliar with the current set up and no incentive should ever be needed on such a community based event, but when you look at the numbers it could prove to cut the break down costs and easily double the man power.

    If I make it to the festival you can count on me to help deconstruct. I am in Wyoming now but plan to start ambling that direction by the end of July. 90% chance I will be there!!
