Don't just go to the Telluride Jazz Festival, be a part of it!

Volunteering is a great way to earn a 3-Day Pass, meet new friends, get a free festival t-shirt and be a part of the show! All you have to do is fill out the application and choose the shifts and department that you'd like to join. Volunteers are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. If there is a position or department you're interested in, please apply early to increase your chances of obtaining your desired shifts.

  • All volunteers must submit an application below to be considered for a volunteer position. If accepted as a volunteer, you must complete two shifts (5-6 hours each) in exchange for a 3-Day festival pass and a festival staff t-shirt. We typically assign each volunteer one morning shift and one afternoon or evening shift.
  • All applicants must enter credit card information as a guarantee that you will complete your scheduled shifts if accepted as a volunteer. If you fail to satisfactorily complete your scheduled shifts, the Telluride Jazz Festival reserves the right to charge for the equivalent amount of a 3-Day Pass (refer to the 'I Agree' section on the volunteer application for more information).
  • Please note that Camping and Jazz After Dark passes are not included. If you are volunteering and would like to camp during the festival, you will need to purchase a camping pass. Please note that Camping Passes could sell out.
