How can I volunteer to help at this fabulous event?
Do I have to attend one of the volunteer orientation sessions in order to help out?
Short answer: No. The orientation session is not mandatory for volunteers, but it is highly encouraged since trainings will take place on site and the event layout evolves every year.

Two orientations are available for your convenience, so please sign up for just one date.

Do I need to register?
Everything is first come, first served. However, for some competitions, pre-registration is recommended. Save time at the event by filling out our waiver in advance!
What is your pet policy?
Our furry friends are welcome and will have plenty of fun in the Bark Zone. Dogs must be leashed and under control at all times. Returning this year is the Subaru Pooch Island Dog Park, where your furry friend can play nice with others and stretch its legs off-leash. If any pet puts park visitors at risk, the event staff reserves the right to ask the owner to remove the pet from Wagner Subaru Outdoor Experience.
