Volunteer with Found Festival 2017! New friends. Awesome perks. Free shows.
Common Ground Arts Society is seeking volunteers in a variety of positions to help make the 6th annual Found Festival a smash success. Volunteers receive awesome perks, including a free festival t-shirt, access to free shows, an invite to the VIP closing party, and more. The more hours you volunteer, the more perks come your way.
Found Festival 2017 runs June 22 – 25 in various locations around the Old Strathcona neighbourhood. Festival Headquarters are located at Dr. Wilbert McIntyre Park (aka Gazebo Park) at 83rd Avenue and 104th Street.
Deadline to volunteer: June 25, 2017.
Check out our volunteer teams below, and contact Meagan at [email protected] if you have any questions.
Site Crew: Consider yourself a handy person? Festival Headquarters needs you! Duties include setting up the site (putting up decorations, setting up tables, chairs, tents, garbage receptacles etc), maintaining the site throughout the festival (tidying the park, resetting tables and chairs, keeping the people happy), and cleaning up at the end of the festival. This position requires some light physical work.
Bartender: Outgoing? Love to chat? Want to help folks have a great time? We’re looking for volunteer bartenders to sling drinks and help our Bar Manager keep the beer gardens in tip top shape. Bartenders must be over the age of 18, have valid government ID, and current ProServe certification.
Box Office: Be in the thick of the action! Sell tickets. Track sales. Direct patrons and artists. Help make festival magic. Volunteers in this position are expected to manage and report cash floats.
Information / Merch: Hawk official Found Fest wear as well as band merch at our Info Booth/Merch Table hybrid! Duties include setting up and taking down the merch table, selling festival and artist wares, managing and reporting cash floats, as well as being an information hub about Found Fest to our patrons.
Front of House: We need a small army of Front of House volunteers to greet patrons, sell tickets at the door, rip tickets, accept donations, and keep the good times rolling. Access to a vehicle, bicycle or another form of transportation is an asset — some travel between venues and Festival Headquarters will be involved.
