Want to participate in The Great Bull Run and Tomato Royale for FREE? Sign up to be a volunteer! Simply click on Locations and select the festival nearest you, then click REGISTER. Choose either the AM shift (7:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.) or the PM shift (11:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.) and you’ll be on your way to running with live bulls, battling your friends with tomatoes and having the time of your life!
All volunteers get a participant ticket to The Great Bull Run, which includes a ticket to Tomato Royale. Of course, you don’t have to run with the bulls if you’re not up for it. You can just participate in Tomato Royale or be a spectator! AM volunteers get to participate as soon as their shift is over. PM volunteers can participate in the 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. bull runs (and/or 9:30 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. Tomato Royale) by paying a $120 deposit when they arrive in the morning. We’ll return the full deposit as soon as they complete their PM shift. Volunteers can also elect to use their free entry at a future festival, or if it’s a 2-day event, on whatever day they’re not volunteering!
What you get:
- Participation in one running of the bulls and/or participation in one Tomato Royale food fight
- Access to the day-long festival featuring great bands, tasty food, fun games and cold beer
- Access to all spectator areas for both The Great Bull Run and Tomato Royale
- One Great Bull Run t-shirt or one Tomato Royale t-shirt
