Stockton Asparagus Festival Booth (Friday)

About the Stockton Asparagus Festival

The Stockton Asparagus Festival is an annual event held in Downtown Stockton that encompasses the waterfront, Weber Point, and more.

The festival attracts over 100,000 people from the greater area during its three days, from 10am - 7 pm. Live entertainment, games and contests, an an Asparagus Alley are just some of the fun and exciting things happening over the weekend.

About Our Tent

The purpose of our tent will be to:

  •  provide a community for area atheists and freethinkers
  • promote the social issues that concern us including the rights of women, children, and the LGBT community

Located in our tent:

  • an email sign-up sheet
  • candy
  • drinks and snacks (for volunteers)

We will be distributing:

  • upcoming event flyers
  • bookmarks with recommended reading
  • non-tracts that discuss social issues
  • Camp Quest brochures

Volunteering

If you can attend the tent, even if only for an hour, please RSVP. It would be great to have 6-8 people at all times during the day so that everyone can take breaks and enjoy the festival.

Hours to volunteer are 9:45 AM - 7:15 PM, all three days.

All volunteers for 3+ hours will recieve free admission to the Festival. We ask that everyone wear a shirt that is pro-atheism, but not offensive to those of other worldviews. For those who have ordered SAAF shirts ($20), they will be waiting for you upon arrival. Others may buy a shirt while supplies last.

    I am available whenever you feel I am most needed. So far, it seems fewer people signed up for Friday.

    I would love to volunteer, but I've yet to attend even one meeting. If this isn't an issue, I'll sign up.
