For those who wish to be a MardiGrass volunteer:

If you cannot afford a pass or just want to contribute to the cause, you can register as a volunteer at the Hemp Embassy. We need help from as early as a few weeks before, so if you want to be part of the preparations, please get in touch:

Email: head@hempembassy.net

Phone: 02-6689 0326

In person: @ Hemp Embassy shop, 51 Cullen Street, Nimbin

The important thing is that we need volunteers BEFORE the event more than we need them during. Also, we will probably have as many as needed by the time the event starts.

Speaking reasonable English is necessary and a willingness to work. We don’t want people who want to sit around smoking all day!

For camping a bedroll and sleeping bag are minimum kit, a tent would be very handy! The nights are starting to get cold at MardiGrass time so make sure you bring warm clothing and whatever else you need in case it rains.

Volunteer jobs are varied and according to the needs of the moment. They can include fence and barricade construction, painting banners and signs, clearing the site, rubbish collection, kitchen work, erecting marquees and tents, building and setting up stages, constructing big joints and rolling smaller ones. Cooks and electricians and artists are especially welcome. email some details, skills etc: head@hempembassy.net


Volunteers...bring your own bowl and mug if you can!

Thank you for your interest in being part of MardiGrass 2016! We're always keen to hear from friendly and positive people who want to assist cannabis law reform. MardiGrass wishes to extend a welcome and many thanks for those who donate their time during this event. Without you it could not happen!

Volunteering requirements vary depending on the task but average around 12 hours of work before, during or after the festival. The volunteer application form shows the range of volunteering positions on offer. If you have volunteered in the past and want to be part of the same team, get in touch early and list your preference.


We recommend getting in early as most positions are usually filled well before MardiGrass.

This year MardiGrass falls on Friday 29th April, Saturday 30th April and Sunday 1st of May, but (as always) it really kicks off many weeks earlier.


We need volunteers from 1 April onwards! Particularly help with site preparation. So if you have those skills, we would love to hear from you NOW!


Volunteer jobs are varied and according to the needs of the moment. They can include fence and barricade construction, rubbish collection, erecting marquees and tents, setting up stages, painting signs, and anything else that needs to be done to make MardiGrass happen successfully.

If you would like to volunteer, then you will need to bring all of your own camping materials, etc. You must bring enclosed footwear and a hat. For camping a bedroll and sleeping bag are minimum kit. The nights are starting to get cold at MardiGrass time so make sure you bring warm clothing and whatever else you need in case it rains. Bring your own bowl and mug if you can!


The Jungle Patrol is a local volunteer organisation that patrol the streets, encourage people to keep the peace, and bear witness when they do not. The Jungle Patrol cannot enter an affray, but will encourage a peaceful resolution to any disturbance. If there is an incident, it is witnessed, and aid is rendered after the event if necessary. Jungle Patrol members will be able to contact the Police if the situation warrants it.

The Jungle Patrol grew from the volunteer groups of early MardiGrass celebrations.

If you think you can be that, volunteer!

The Jungle Patrol will be providing visitor information, crowd safety, primary first aid, event communications and security/police liaison.

If you need help during the event don't hesitate to ask.

For those who came in late....

 

Jungle Patrol operates from Friday 8am through to early Monday morning and people are urged to sign up for two four hour shifts.

Meeting & Briefing

6 - 8pm

Nimbin Town Hall, Verandah, Thursday 28th April
