VOLUNTEER

VOLUNTEER PROGRAM OVERVIEW AND APPLICATION

Ambassadors are a small group of dedicated volunteers who are essential to making the Big Ears Festival possible. There are several ways to help, and anyone over the age of 18, regardless of physical limitations, background or festival experience is encouraged to apply. Due to the limited number of available volunteer positions, however, the program is selective, and priority will be given to individuals who volunteered as a Big Ears 2022 Senior or Festival Ambassador.
