We are looking for a few good men and women to help us make the Scottsdale Jazz Festival the best it can be! Volunteers must be able to stand for a few hours at a time and be reliable, but the perks outweigh the temporary discomfort including a free custom t-shirt, a general admission ticket for a friend, food and beverage tickets, and you get to see some of the very best regional and international jazz musicians for FREE!
Best of all, you get to be part of a really fun event.
PLEASE JOIN US!

For volunteers working the later shift, please bring your own flashlight. As people exit the festival site, flashlights will be helpful to help prevent tripping and falling.
