Volunteer Coordinator Needed

The Volunteer Coordinator is our chief cat wrangler and fun instigator, and the source of sunshine for all our eager volunteers. Responsible for the recruitment, retention, rostering and wrangling of both year-round and event-based volunteers, the VC is the most vital link in the entire festival’s chain of awesomeness.

We had an amazing HONK! Fest West 2021. Thank you to all of our volunteers, performers, and everyone who came out to brave the beautiful fall weather! The pandemic nor the rain could keep HONK! from shaking our horns, drums and butts at it. We were blown away by the amazing energy of this year's bands and the pandemic of positivity everyone shared throughout the day. Much love and thanks to all of you for joining us for a joyous cacophony in Columbia Park, Seattle!

Mark your calendars for the first weekend of June, when we return for HONK! Fest West 2022! Locations to be announced in January!!! We are looking forward to HONK'ing again with you in 2022!

Want to see what our photographer, Tobin Holliday, captured for the day?
