Greetings North Cascades Bluegrass Festival Volunteers!

Approximately 50-60 individuals volunteer each year during our festival.  Shift times are typically 4 to 5 hours each.  For every 4 hours worked, volunteers will receive a one-day festival pass up to a maximum of 3 passes.  For those wishing to work more than 12 hours, and many do, those efforts are greatly appreciated and we express our most heartfelt gratitude for your help. (Note: Festival Passes do not include camping passes)


If you are interested in Volunteering for this year’s festival, you will need to submit an application.  Click on this link to go to the:  Volunteer Application Form

Once you have submitted your application, we will try and match you up with our available volunteer positions, dates and times per the information included on your application.  While every attempt will be made to match you with your application requests, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to offer you a volunteer position.  Please note that the more choices that you give us when filling out the form, the greater the likelihood that we will be able to offer you a position.

Please note that the majority of our available positions are on Saturday, September 2nd and Sunday, September 3rd.  We also have a number of positions available on Thursday, August 31st, Friday, September 1st and Monday, September 4th that involve helping with setup and take down of the festival.

If you have previously volunteered at our festival, we are grateful for your service and we look forward to receiving your application for this year’s festival.
