Volunteer Online Signup

We use a volunteer organizing site to sign up volunteers - Instructions to access the Bloomerang Volunteer site:


To access the Bloomerang site and sign up, the first thing to do is to


  • Make sure you have Google Chrome as your default browser (if you don’t have it you will need to download it for free) .If this tries to open up another browser such as Firefox, it won’t work. Once you have Google Chrome, click on the button below to enter the Bloomerang site.

If you are a previous volunteer and have used Bloomerang site before:

  • You will be asked to start by putting your email address in and click on next or put in your password. If you can’t remember your password click on “forgot my password” and follow the directions.
  • If you are returning from a previous year and get past the password test, complete the information sheet and check the “I agree” box for the waiver.


If you are a new volunteer or have not used the Bloomerang site before:

  • You’ll be asked to put in your email address and to create a password. There are also a couple of check boxes that you’ll need to check that says you’ll behave yourself on the website. Once you accomplish this task, you’ll be taken to the information sheet where you fill out some basic information. Yes, it wants your street address, so if you don’t want to divulge that, put in 123 Main Street. We just want to know in which city you live. Really important, check the “I agree” box for the waiver.


Select your volunteer shift (s)

  • Now comes the fun part. You can filter the various work shifts available by role (such as cashier, venue helper, etc.) and venue (Adorni, Eureka Theater, etc.) and sign up for available shifts that suit your schedule. Remember, if you sign up for at least 6 hours, you get a free All Event ticket that will get you into all six venues for the entire weekend.


And again, if you are having problems with the Bloomerang site and can’t find someone under 30 years old to help you, give me a call and we’ll fumble through it together!
