Join the HONK! Festival Organizers!

We welcome new ideas, energy, perspectives. And we need your active support!

Since 2006, the magic that is the annual HONK! Festival has been created by a small group of creative and committed volunteer organizers working behind the scenes. As the festival has grown in scope and complexity the number of people managing the work also needs to grow.

Our goal this year is to not only bring more organizers onto our team, but to ensure that the makeup of our leadership gives voice to the broad diversity of people who enjoy the festival in terms of racial identities, cultural backgrounds, ethnic and indigenous identities, native languages, gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, immigration statuses and abilities.

So, we invite you to join us to make this HONK! Festival the best one ever. If you want to sign up, or you just want to learn more about what being a volunteer organizer of the HONK! Festival entails, please contact us at .

Our Principles of Unity support the work the HONK! organizers and our vision for HONK!
