West Seattle Summer Fest Volunteer Information

Thank you for signing up to be part of our booth at the West Seattle Summer Fest! I wanted to provide some basic information prior to this weekend.

The West Seattle Timebank will be located within Greenlife, hosted by Sustainable West Seattle. Information on how to get to the festival can be found here at the Summer Fest website, including specifics on parking, and bus, bike, and boat transportation options.

Our booth location will be within Greenlife at the cross streets of California Avenue SW and SW Edmunds Streets in West Seattle. The below map shows a general location (attached to the email for reference if you cannot see it below); the Timebank will not have an exact booth location until we arrive on Friday morning. We are at the south end of the festival across SW Edmunds street from Uptown Espresso. Look for a courtyard by the Chase Bank drive thru. You’ll most likely see Sustainable West Seattle/Greenlife signage and the stage first. If you have volunteered at this festival before, we are in the same general location as previous years. Look for our booth – we’ll have our banner up!

Right now, the weather forecast is showing a significant chance of showers on both Friday and Saturday. Sunday it should be clearer. We will have cover, but please plan to dress for the weather and bring anything to make you comfortable. There will be plenty of food/beverage options if you choose to partake in Summer Fest.

If you plan on participating on stage on Saturday, July 9th, 2016, please bring any props you may need and arrive by 1115AM. The fun starts at 1130AM! More information can be found here.

You can see the days/times you have signed up to participate here. If something has changed, please let us know or edit your times on the poll. Haven’t signed up yet? That’s fine, you can just come find us at the festival if you are able.

After you are done volunteering for the West Seattle Timebank during Summer Fest, please plan to record your own exchange in Community Weaver. Use ‘West Seattle Timebank’ as the recipient of the service and yourself as the provider of the service. If you need assistance with this, please do not hesitate to ask. Alternately, we hope to see you at our next OpenHouse on July 21st – you can get one-on-one help there.

Looking forward to seeing you all this weekend. Summer Fest is always a guaranteed fun time!
