Pocumtuck Homelands Festival: Volunteers Needed!

We are still looking for volunteers for the Pocumtuck Homelands Festival at Unity Park in Turners Falls, August 2.

If you are  interested, please contact 

The festival will be held in conjunction with the Turners Falls block party, but with its own hours and in its own space. Set up will  be from 10 to 12, and events run throughout the day (ending time will be sometime after 4pm, to be determined).

We will need the bulk of volunteers at the beginning and end of the festival. There are a few specialty areas we are asking if people to help out with:

1) 2 people with a pick up truck needed to pick up risers and set them up (please specify if you can do this and if so, do you have a truck to use)

2) someone with expertise in sound systems to help set up, operate, and tear down for the musicians.

3) someone to provide a straight back wooden chair and small table for Hawk Henries to use during his performance.

4) someone to help place wooden benches near the stage for spectators

Other more general jobs will include helping vendors find their areas with the use of a map, setting up the Nolumbeka Project tent, and generally helping the festival get started and end smoothly.

We will meet at the parking for the fish ladder near Unity Park (along First Street in Turners Falls) at 10am on Aug 2. Any time after 10 AM, you'll find us along the bike path/river contingent to the parking lot.

If you are  interested, please contact  

We are excited about this event and welcome your input, and look forward to working with you!
