Over 500 people dedicate their time, services and expertise to the TD Ottawa Jazz Festival. Volunteers eagerly anticipate the start of the Festival and some take vacation time to help out, contributing over 22,000 total hours of work. Our volunteer coordinators are essential to day to day operations over the course of the Festival. Divided into teams, our committed volunteers oversee everything from stage, transportation, and box office to sales, site maintenance, and beer and wine sales.

Applications to be a new volunteer at the 2017 TD Ottawa Jazz Festival will open on March 15th here. Returning volunteers do NOT need to re-apply.

Our 2017 volunteer meeting will take place at Jean Pigott Place in Ottawa City Hall on Friday, May 5th, 2017 @ 6PM. The meeting is for all returning and new volunteers that have been contacted by the Volunteer Coordinator.
