Southern California's Favorite Traditional Music Festival
is Run Completely by Volunteers!

Take my word for it… the best way to experience the Topanga Banjo•Fiddle Contest is to be a part of it!

Join our team, and spend May 19th surrounded by mountains, music, and good feels. 


  • Think Big - check out our Behind The Scenes jobs!  We are always evolving and need your help to grow. 

  • Enjoyed volunteering last year?  Step up to Supervisor!  

  • Musicians - we’d love your help in the Instrument Petting Zoo!













*New this year - Videography volunteers needed!* 

See list of jobs


We try our absolute best to assign shifts (minimum three hours) that work best for our volunteers.  Most of the jobs required to run the festival are active and fast-paced.  Please understand that our low-key opportunities are limited and claimed quickly.


As a thank you, volunteers are provided free admission to the festival as well as a bagged lunch.



I look forward to receiving your form!
