The TD Kitchener Blues Festival wants you! The positive community energy of sharing in the TD Kitchener Blues Festival experience begins and ends with over 400 volunteers who make this festival happen. We are looking for people interested in contributing to our community to be a part of our team. Volunteers with SmartServe certification, festival experience, or just a willingness to pitch in are always welcome. If you are interested in joining our volunteers, you will have a choice of many roles that exist. Being a member our volunteer team means you see the festival from a different vantage point: serving drinks, selling tickets and merchandise, or helping out at the stages.
Even working a single 4 hour shift is really appreciated. Of course, volunteers have so much fun at our festival, most like to stay a lot longer! Check out our volunteer application form at https://www.volgistics.com/ex/portal.dll/ap?ap=1639100359
