This is Pure Country on Pure Nevada Farmland in Yerington, Nevada
BECOME A VOLUNTEER!
One of the reasons Night in the Country is a successful event is due to our many volunteers who donate their weekend to ensure our patrons have a great time. Last year we had over 300 people donate their time and energy to help put on an amazing show for Night in the Country.
Night in the Country is able to offer our volunteers a chance to participate in the Give & Get Program. This program was founded in 2013 and serves a unique purpose for non-profit organizations. With this program each volunteer will be able to work for an hourly rate ranging from $8-$12. This will then be donated by Night in the Country to each volunteer’s chosen non-profit organization.
Volunteers are required to complete an online application form and pass a background check. The age requirement for volunteers is 18. Applications will only be accepted through July 5, 2020.
DATES & TIMES OF SERVICE
Volunteer work various schedules depending on their specific duties and responsibilities. Most shifts occur the weekend of the event; however, some will begin work a week or two before the event and some will work after the event. While some volunteers work many more hours, we ask that volunteers work 12 hours in order to receiver full volunteer benefits.Your work dates and time schedule will be provided by the Volunteer Coordinator via email once you have been approved.
For donating your time and energy we will be providing all returning volunteers with a 3-day general admission pass for the Night in the Country Music Festival. This wristband allows entry into the venue for the weekend. Along with the 3-day pass you will be provided with one free volunteer shirt. This shirt must be worn as a uniform and ONLY during your shift. We also have available meals and refreshments during your working shift, if applicable. Limited Volunteer Camping is available at a discounted price.
**Volunteer packets, credentials, and shirts will be issued at the volunteer center when you arrive on-site for your job shift. **
Your job placement and shift times will be sent out for your review and acceptance. The acceptance of your position needs to be completed before July 17, 2020.
**Parking passes are NOT covered with this volunteer program. Please check our website for pricing information. **
