What is to be expected:

This is a mostly indoor event with activities and food trucks in the parking lot of The Throop Civic Center.
The Civic Center is located in the heart of Throop Boro. The Festival will be heavily marketed to friends and family of Throop, Mid Valley, and surrounding communities including Olyphant, Dickson City, Dunmore, Jessup, and others.

All volunteers must be available between 8AM - 7PM Saturday April 22nd.
Some adjustments may be made depending on tasks.
Each volunteer will have enough down time in between tasks to enjoy the festival, take breaks, and grab meals throughout the day (there will be many food options!). Half Day options available upon request.
You will receive a certificate of community service at the end of the event, signed off by Shanty Town Design.
