Special Workshops

There will be three Special Workshops available to fest attendees. Each Special Workshop costs $60 (in addition to normal fest registration fees) and will meet on two days for a total of four hours. The Special Workshops will be scheduled during different time slots, so attendees wanting to commit a lot of time to learning and training can register for two or even all three.

The IJA’s annual festival is a mammoth undertaking and the more volunteers we have, the more successful the event will be!

Volunteers are needed for a wide range of positions including gym door checkers, ticket assistants, IJA table staff, registration assistants, T-shirt and video sales, ushers at shows, stage crew, and election tellers. Those with a car at the fest are needed as VIP airport chauffeurs and downtown errand runners. From one hour to several hours, every moment of volunteer assistance is a huge help and greatly appreciated!

If you are willing to volunteer to help make the IJA fest a success, please email IJA Festival Volunteer Coordinator Warren Hammond at .
