The Volunteer Team Behind Bluesfest

We are now accepting applications for new RBC Bluesfest volunteers!

Since 2019, we’ve been working on updating our volunteer program to make certain that we’re offering the best support and onsite experience to all of our volunteers; this included re-organizing some of our teams to ensure we were using our resources as effectively as possible. In order to help with this goal, each volunteer area has been grouped under one of the eight new volunteer departments listed below: Beverage Services, Customer Care, Festival Operations, Fundraising, Production, VIP, Volunteer Support, and Youth Opportunities.

Specialized recruitment is now open for privately-recruited teams who are looking for new volunteers!
