Volunteer Appreciation and Sponsors 2022

The Ottawa RBC Bluesfest would not be able to succeed without the hard work of our committed Volunteers. In celebration of the efforts The Team Behind Bluesfest hosts an annual Volunteer Appreciation Banquet after each festival!

This is an opportunity for us to reconnect post-festival and reshare the memories and stories that happened during the festival.

RBC Bluesfest is committed to creating long lasting connections within our local community. Which is why we have partnered with local businesses to sponsor our Volunteer Appreciation Party!
