The successful execution of CumberlandFest requires the support of volunteers who assist with the set-up and breakdown of the park and who oversee and help with event operations during the three-day event. Our goal is to recruit enough volunteers to break down tasks in a way that is not overly burdensome to any single person or group of volunteers. Historically, volunteer help has been drawn from the leadership of the youth organizations that benefit from the financial success of CumberlandFest and their youth participants, as well as individual volunteers drawn from the community at large. This year, the organizer of CumberlandFest, the Cumberland Youth Activities Council (CYAC), has amended its funding formula. Participating youth organizations will be guaranteed a contribution of $10 for each volunteer hour worked, plus a bonus payment based upon the net proceeds of CumberlandFest. Net proceeds will be distributed to participating organizations based upon the percentage of the total volunteer hours that each organization works.
