Volunteer Lodging

Lodging in the Park City area during the Festival can be expensive and difficult to secure. Some Full-time volunteers are eligible for Festival provided lodging but it is not guaranteed. When selecting Full-Time volunteers for Festival provided lodging, we give preference to volunteers who have been with the Festival for a number of years. (Keep in mind Festival lodging is not glamorous - often it is a sofa sleeper in a common room.)


We do not provide any lodging for Half Fest or Sign Up volunteers.


All new volunteers that apply as a full time volunteer are not typically eligible for lodging. Exceptions do happen (although extremely rare) and are due to last minute cancellations and/or specialized volunteer roles that they have the necessary skills for.


Please note, volunteers are not allowed to stay with friends in Festival-provided lodging unless they are assigned to that lodging by the Festival.


* Do you have your own lodging in Utah during the Festival?
 Yes  No

* Please choose one of the following:
Yes I am local/area resident OR I have ALREADY arranged a place to stay
Yes I plan to find a place on my own and I will follow up with information once I have secured accommodations
No I would need the Festival to provide me lodging in order to be able to volunteer for the Festival (Only Full-Time volunteers are eligible for this)
