Volunteers can work before, during, and/or after the Festival to bring enthusiasm to a variety of jobs - from ticket sales to stage work, from prize distribution to craft services, and everything in between. Many new jobs reflect the site changes caused by the recent fires – perhaps your skills can come in handy this year in particular! Back for its second year, the Instrument Petting Zoo is seeking volunteers who want to help us craft new musicians. We'd love to hear from musicians who those who would enjoy sharing their instrument with potential musicians-in-the-making!
Notably, we will “Come Together” this year with the Los Angeles County Long Term Recovery Group and the Agoura community in the wake of the Woolsey Hill fires. We will gather together as a community to create a mural that celebrates the journey to resiliency! Details still to come, but please let us know through the Volunteer Form if you’d like to be a part of this singular experience!
Volunteers at the Topanga Banjo•Fiddle Contest are a special breed. They choose to be an active part of the festival, impacting its legacy of friendly musical competition, professional performances, and communal music. Their skills run the gamut, and they choose from a host of different roles to apply those skills. Their common ground is their passion for music.
Use our volunteer form to inform of us of your abilities and limitations. Please note all of our new jobs this year, including artistic opportunities! We try our absolute best to assign volunteer shifts (which are a minimum of two hours) that work best for you. We welcome your feedback and appreciate your flexibility in accepting your assignment!
We need your help now more than ever! Please consider joining our team this year, and know that your contribution is truly valued. Thanks in advance for your interest in volunteering; this event cannot happen without you.
In addition to our treasured volunteer pool, we are always on the lookout for those who'd like to take it one step further-- our "Super Volunteers." If you are interested in working behind the scenes during the months leading up to the Contest, we can definitely use your help and enthusiasm! We often require assistance in the areas of graphic arts, trades (construction / electrician), organization, advertising / promotion / publicity, legal, vendor relations, and much more. Please don't hesitate to contact Kayli Blundell at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how you might be able to become more involved in our organization.
