The press/photo pass application opens here every spring.

I’m a member of the press and would like to set up an interview with someone at Maha.

I lost or found something at Maha Festival.

If you find something at the festival like a phone, wallet, jewelry, credit card, ID, etc., please take a minute to turn it in at Guest Services, located within the festival grounds at 67th and Mercy St.

If you lost something during the festival, head to Guest Services.

After the festival, all items turned in to the Maha Lost & Found will be at Noddle Companies, located at 2285 S 67th Street #250, Omaha, NE 68106. Please call in advance with your inquiry: 402-496-1616.

I have a question not listed here. How do I get in touch?

The fastest way is to use this form or write to info@mahafestival.com. Questions sent via social media comments and DMs may take longer to get a response.

Volunteering

How do I get all the latest volunteer info?

If you’ve volunteered in the past or plan to sign up in the future, join the Maha Festival Volunteers Facebook Group to stay up to date on all opportunities. If you’ve volunteered in the past and want to change the email address we have on file, please get in touch at volunteer@mahafestival.com. If you don’t currently receive emails from Maha, sign up now at the bottom of this page!

Why should I volunteer at Maha Festival?

Because we need you! Hundreds of people are part of the volunteer fam, and we’re always looking for more. Are you down to make an impact, and learn something new along the way? This opportunity has your name written on it. Not to mention you also get a free ticket to the event.

What are the volunteer perks?

Glad you asked. When you help out during a shift that ranges from 2-6 hours depending on day and time, you earn free admittance to Maha Festival. You also get a limited-run volunteer T-shirt, early access to next year’s volunteer registration, and legit bragging rights.

When does volunteer registration open?

Volunteer registration typically opens in the spring every year. Last year’s volunteers get first dibs on signing up for shifts — keep an eye on your inbox (and your spam folder!) for the link this spring.

What if I want to get more involved with Maha?

If you want to go above and beyond to make Maha amazing, send a message to volunteer@mahafestival.com with what you have in mind.

How old do you have to be to volunteer?

Generally, we seek volunteers who are 16 or older based on the task assignments available. Some jobs require ages 19+ or 21+. When registration is open, check the job descriptions for age requirements. If you’re under 16 and want to volunteer, please send a note with the shift you want to volunteer@mahafestival.com.
