Live Nation Entertainment and the City of Saint Paul are hosting River’s Edge Music Festival, a two-day event showcasing more than 30 artists on June 23 and 24 at historic Harriet Island. The festival headliners are TOOL and the DAVE MATTHEWS BAND.
River’s Edge is striving to ensure the incredible musical experience is only enhanced by its sustainability efforts before, during, and after the show. To do its part, the festival is offering comprehensive recycling efforts, food composting, water hydration stations, ride share to support carpooling, bicycle valet stations, shuttles to the island, and an area designed solely to engage music fans in diverse environmental and communal not-for-profit organizations.
WSCO is working to find 125 volunteers to staff these sustainability efforts. There will be morning and afternoon shifts each day from 10am to 3pm and from 3pm to 8pm.
Sign up is first come first serve, but preference will be given to West Siders living in the 55107 zip code. The deadline for signing up is May 23rd. Spots will fill up fast. When we meet our quota, we’ll send out an email with more information. If you miss out and we do not have any volunteer spots still available, you will be added to our waiting list.
Thank you for your interest and support. For more information, email Elena Gaarder firstname.lastname@example.org. Please no phone calls.
