Tottenham Bluegrass Festival Volunteers

The success of the Tottenham Bluegrass festival is a reflection of the Canadian way – a commitment to volunteering and community involvement. That’s how the Tottenham Bluegrass Festival event as grown to attract over thousands of visitors to our community each June.

Volunteerism has become the backbone of the Festival, our volunteers share a passion for the community, the festival and bluegrass music, a foundation that continually inspires the growth and engagement of a thriving volunteer community.

Becoming a Festival volunteer provides the opportunity to meet new people, get involved in the community and, for high school students, earn your required volunteer hours. There are more than 10 committees including Marketing, Green Team, Hospitality, Licensed Area, Campground & Parking Logistics, social media, Set up and Tear Down, Midweek activities, Vendors, and even a Volunteer Committee – something for everyone!

The Festival welcomes new volunteers to join committees or just pitch-in on the Festival weekend, which will run from Thursday, June 16 to Sunday, June 18, 2017
