Sled Island Music & Arts Festival which is held annually at 30+ venues across Calgary’s downtown core. Our 13th edition will take place from June 19 – 23, 2019. Each year, hundreds of volunteers help us make the festival possible. In return, volunteers receive a free festival pass that gives them access to all Sled Island music, comedy, art and film events, discounts for goods and services at select businesses around the city and many more perks! It also gives them an opportunity to meet like-minded individuals and to get acquainted with Calgary’s music and arts community.
There are many volunteer roles available such as admitting festival goers at venues, helping with the installation of art exhibits, or serving drinks at various events. We need a variety of talents to fill our wide range of positions and can accommodate different schedules and abilities. This year, in order to foster added engagement of youth participation with the festival, we have reduced the amount of volunteer participation for those who are 16 & 17 years old to only 8 hours.
Inclusivity is incredibly important to us here at Sled Island, and we want to ensure that all Calgarians have the chance to participate in this diverse and one-of-a-kind festival. Folks can also find more information on our website at sledisland.com/volunteer or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteer registration is now open!
