The involvement of generous, civic-minded businesses and individuals is vital to the success of this endeavor. Community participation and financial support enables Big Pine to reach wider audiences, equip new artists with tools and performance experience, and introduce the public to the beauty performance and live art. We invite you to get involved and make a considerable difference in the arts community. Big Pine offers opportunities in corporate sponsorships, business promotion and marketing opportunities, tax deductible donations, and volunteering. For any questions regarding Big Pine community involvement please contact us here.
In 2017, Big Pine Comedy Festival began providing intern opportunities to Arizona State University and Northern Arizona University students. Through the hard work of the Big Pine family, production team, volunteers, and interns Big Pine plans to come back bigger and better than ever each year.

Our team has been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and have been making every effort to design a safe and organized plan that will allow us to continue with our 2020 event. We have been working to implement social distancing guidelines into our 2020 fest, and plan to adhere to strict CDC guidelines. Some of these changes may include reduced occupancies and new seating arrangements where necessary. In addition, the use of face masks will be implemented by our festival and venue staff. We are fortunate that Big Pine is held in the state of Arizona, which appears to be headed towards a restricted version of normalcy. In addition to new guidlines, many of our Big Pine events and showcases are already held in historic, century old venues, which lend to smaller more intimate audience sizes. Many of our attending industry has already reached out, and they are as anxious as you are to get back to festival life. As we approach September, our team will continue to re-evaluate festival guidelines and procedures based on the current COVID-19 standings at the time. The health and safety of our visiting performers, industry, and audiences are our highest concern. In the event that our 2020 fest needs to be postponed, all submitting performers will be automatically eligible and submitted for our 2021 event. We hope to laugh with you all again shortly.
