Greeters Crew is the face of Hempfest!


The Greeters Crew is one of our most important crews at Seattle Hempfest!

After standing in that long hot line to get in, the joy in the crowd is palpable upon reaching the donation bins at the entrances. A friendly face welcoming people in makes all the difference in the world to their Hempfest experience, and a quick sound bite from our Greeters about how a donation makes Hempfest possible – Hempfest is, after all, a volunteer-based grassroots local nonprofit – that encouragement really makes a difference in our donations from attendees!

One of our Sponsors has provided gorgeous big ol’ shade umbrellas for our Greeters to make the job more comfortable. You bring the smiles!

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:

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!”
