Volunteer to Help the Norman Economy

With the conclusion of the third annual Norman Music Festival, you can start thinking about volunteering for next year’s event. Volunteer coordinator Sara Wall said that a lot of hands go into making the festival possible and without the volunteers it wouldn’t be free.

Wall said that volunteers range from college students to locals just looking to get more involved with the community. Volunteers are given an array of tasks including everything from unloading bands’ equipment to picking up trash afterward.

OU student and volunteer Mari Bower said she helped bring in the money. “I just stood at the one of the entrances and held a bucket for donations.”

Bower also said she helped direct people where to go when they were looking for a particular band.

“I appreciated my time as a Norman Music Festival volunteer, especially knowing how much it benefits Norman’s economy and culture.”

According to the Oklahoma Rock newsblog, the festival pumps $2.5 million into Norman’s economy.
