Thank you for your interest in volunteering. A lot goes into making JazzFest happen, and we couldn’t do it without the support of our dedicated volunteers. Volunteers help with everything from distributing materials and working backstage to selling festival merch and working with kids.

We are no longer accepting applications for this year's festival, happening Sept. 11 and 12, 2021 at Cain Park. If you have questions about volunteering in the future, please contact our volunteer coordinator.  

Kendra Willis
Volunteer Coordinator

The volunteer coordinator is responsible for reviewing applications and contacting you regarding acceptance as a volunteer. A schedule of days and times for your participation, instructions on where and when to report and other pertinent information will be provided through required volunteer orientations. Training may be required for some volunteer positions.
