Fort Langley Jazz and Arts Festival

Jazz festival seeking hundreds of volunteers
Volunteer registration for summer festival now open
March 3, 2019–Fort Langley, BC–It takes a village to run the Fort Langley Jazz & Arts Festival and volunteers of all ages and skill levels are needed to make the summer festival happen once again.
The Fort Langley Jazz & Arts Festival is seeking hundreds of volunteers in a variety of roles and shifts for the festival that has grown from one-day in 2018 to two a half days from July 26 to 28.
“Volunteering with the festival is a great opportunity to be part of a fun community event, gain valuable work experience and meet amazing new people, all while taking in fantastic live music and art activities” said Karen Zukas, executive director. “There is a role for everyone.”
Volunteers can sign-up on their own or as a group with family, friends, or work/school-related group in roles ranging from customer service, artist management and special events to photography, stage management and street team. A minimum of a four-hour shift is required in exchange for a volunteer festival t-shirt and an invitation to the Volunteer Appreciation event.
“We are in particular need of volunteers who can help with set up and take down,” said Zukas. “It takes a lot of advance work to set up the festival along with take down activities that happen daily.” Set up and take down is a great activity for groups to get involved with noted Zukas. “Grab your hats and gloves and come out to help us transform Fort Langley into a fabulous outdoor festival site.” Register to volunteer at https://www.fortlangleyjazzfest.com/volunteer
