Volunteer at the Reno Jazz Festival
Be a part of the 2019 Reno Jazz Festival by signing up to be a volunteer. You’ll be taking part in what is considered one of the biggest jazz events in the world and, as a thank you for your contribution, you will receive a free ticket to that evening's performance along with other benefits like free food, t-shirt and snacks!
The Reno Jazz Festival hosts the legendary jazz innovators of today and tomorrow as well as educators and other professional musicians across the country. The Festival has grown considerably in size since its debut in 1962. We estimate over 350 school groups, 9,000 participants, 50 clinicians, guest performers, and adjudicators will be in attendance this year, and with three days of concerts, clinics, and competitions we could use some help.
Volunteer shifts are Friday, April 26 (7 a.m. - 1 p.m. or 1 p.m. - 6 p.m.) and Saturday, April 27 (7 a.m. - 1 p.m. or 1 p.m. - 6 p.m.) Lending a hand for a half day gets you a free ticket to that night’s show and a Reno Jazz Festival T-shirt. If you can help us out the whole day, we’ll throw in lunch and snacks. All we ask is that you attend our mandatory volunteer orientation held the week of the festival to make sure we’re all on the same page: April 21 at noon or April 23 at 7 p.m. You can choose from a variety of roles such as door monitor, announcer, stage guide, photography assistant and information desk assistant.
