More than 600 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 in the 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.

Volunteer applications for the 2019 TD Ottawa Jazz Festival are now closed. Please check back in March 2020 for applications for the 2020 TD Ottawa Jazz Festival.

The application is for new volunteers ONLY. Returning volunteers need not apply!
