Volunteers: Job Descriptions

The festival could not be staged without the tremendous contributions of time and energy provided by the more than 500 volunteers involved each year. Each volunteer is expected to work a minimum of four hours during the festival and there are two and four-hour shifts, depending on the task.

In addition to having the satisfaction of being a part of making this special event happen, volunteers receive a festival t-shirt, an invitation to the Volunteer and Performer Party held on Saturday night of the festival, access to the festival “green rooms” and a regular newsletter featuring information about invited performers and special activities.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer member of the festival team, we would love to hear from you.
