Sundance Saloon volunteers

Volunteers Needed!

Sundance Saloon is run entirely by volunteers. The managers, front door and coat-check staff, set-up crew, instructors, and DJs all donate their time to create this unique institution. The cumulative effort of dozens of volunteers keeps Sundance Saloon thriving and helps make it such a special place.

We need your help! We are recruiting new volunteers for the front door and coat-check, especially "core" volunteers who can commit to serving one hour a month for six months. Of course we're happy to have you even for the occasional service. If you can help us out, contact

More info about volunteering.
