    At the festival, JETAA Texoma often sets up an information booth about the JET Program staffed by volunteers from our membership. If you're interested in volunteering for a shift at our booth, please contact us: http://www.jetaatexoma.org/contact-2/

    If you just plan to attend the festival, feel free to pop by and say hello! It's a stellar event--but make sure to plan ahead for parking/walking, hydration, crowds, and sun-protection!
