MOFGA Volunteer Survey

Are you volunteering for the Common Ground Country Fair?

Thank you! The 2,000+ volunteers who make the Fair happen do everything from parking cars to coordinating logistics. With this amazing diversity, MOFGA is always working to improve support for our volunteers.

We want to hear from you! What worked well and what needs improvement? Please fill out this Volunteer Survey and we will refer to the information throughout the year as we plan for the 2020 Fair. As you fill it out, supplemental questions will appear in a few places to ask for more detail, but it should only take about 10 minutes to give us your feedback.

We appreciate you very much, and hope that you come back to volunteer next year, and bring a friend!
