Hempfest runs on Volunteer power!

This Protestival has been staffed by Volunteers for 25 years, and as we grow larger and more mainstream it’s harder to fill all the shifts…

Folklife crew

YOU can make a difference this season by helping us recruit more volunteers at fun events like the Northwest Folklife Festival

For over 20 years our crew has enjoyed wandering through Folklife at Seattle Center with Hempfest signs and handbills, and getting people excited about volunteering at the Protestival in August!

Meet us on Saturday or Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend – 5/27 & 5/28 – at 2pm or 4pm.

We will be meeting on the steps outside the Armory building [formerly the Center House] on the North side, the side you enter from the Harrison St. entrance– past the EMP and the Chihuly Garden and Glass museum– accessed from 5th Ave N. [East side of Seattle Center.]  The back steps of the Center House face Memorial Stadium and the First-Aid tent/Ambulance.


The bigger the crew, the more fun we have, but you can also just check in with us to pick-up some handbills and take off to your favorite stage! Feel free to wear your Hempfest shirt 😉
