Join our incredible community of Ottawa Jazz Festival volunteers. Find your place, meet new people, and be at the heart of the energy.

Our volunteers have been an integral part of the success of the Ottawa Jazz Festival for over 40 years. They are our secret weapon: a solid group of volunteers, returning year after year (we pride ourselves on our over 95% return rate!) The more than 600 volunteers of all ages and skill levels who dedicate their time, services and expertise are the crux of the whole Festival. With a dozen crews spread over multiple sites and venues, there are opportunities for everyone.

To our volunteers: thank you for your on-going dedication! You make it happen.
