Be a Volunteer For A Night In The Country
A Night in the Country is largely a volunteer powered event and is the main reasons for its success.
To become a Night in the Country Volunteer, each year you are asked to fill out and sign a volunteer application waiver form.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: All applications must be completed July 18th in order to qualify for the Give and Get program.
Dates and Times of Service
Volunteer teams will work a variety of schedules and hours depending on their designated assignments. Below is a list of volunteer job descriptions and tentative schedules. Once you have submitted an application you will be contacted with your volunteer dates and times. We asked that you work a minimum of one shift (8 hours or two 4 hours) to receive the volunteer benefits.
On the application, please indicate three preferred job duties in order to help improve your chances of being placed in the desired position. All applicants will be notified the first week in July of their volunteer job placement.
The reward is a two-day wristband to get in to the concert on and off duty for the weekend. You will also receive one free volunteer shirt, to be used as a uniform during working hours ONLY, along with meals and refreshments during your working shift, if applicable.
New this year is our “Give and Get” program which also allows you as a volunteer to designate a non-profit in Lyon county to be the beneficiary of your volunteer service. Every hour you spend will be calculated at a rate of $8-$12 per hour based on the volunteer task performed and will be donated in your name to that cause.
Following the Festival, there will be an Appreciation Event held to recognize all the wonderful volunteers that have participated in this year’s event. In addition there will be various check presentations to the various causes and the volunteers will be recognized for their service.
You must submit an application and have received a confirmation notification before wristbands and volunteer shirts will be issued.
**Please note that parking during the event is an additional fee and is NOT covered with this volunteer program**
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley greatly appreciates your interest in the volunteer program, and we look forward to another great year!
