We couldn’t do Flying Tomato Festival without our amazing volunteers. Volunteers get hooked up with a shirt and help us do everything from setting up, checking in, Cleaning up and tearing down. We have limited Volunteer slots available for packet pick-up days – as those volunteers may get a free ticket to the event.
