Volunteering at NERAX is a great way to support the festival and enjoy it too!
Volunteers make the festival happen. Volunteers help us throughout the week of NERAX, from setup to breakdown. For every shift you work, you're entitled to attend a session of the festival as our guest. No matter which shift you work, all volunteers are welcome at the Staff Party on Saturday night.
If you wish to volunteer, please fill in the Volunteer Sign-up form and click on the Submit button at the bottom of the page.
During the festival, we ask that you arrive at the Somerville American Legion Hall Post 388 about half an hour before the session starts. For example, that would mean coming in at 5:30 pm for a session starting at 6:00 pm to check in with the staffing manager and to meet with your supervisor for your training. We also ask that you stay about half an hour after the end of the session to help clean up the hall. For a session ending at 10:30, that would mean staying untill 11:00 pm.
