Positive, committed and dependable volunteers are needed! Please review the job descriptions to decide which position is right for you. Note that there are age limitations in some areas. If you have prior experience volunteering at other festivals, let us know.
After you apply, we will consider your request and notify you within one week. Safety is one of our main concerns at the Buttermilk Jamboree, so background checks (based on your name and birthdate that remain in our secure system) will be required for all volunteers. <b>Volunteers are expected to work at least 2 four-hour shifts,</b> and will be reimbursed for a portion of their ticket price ($25/shift) after successful completion of all shifts. Special circumstances for shifts will be listed in job descriptions. Volunteers are recommended to purchase an Early Bird Ticket ($85 for the weekend) so that three completed shifts will reimburse close to their entire ticket purchase price, minus the cost of t-shirt. Tickets can be purchased online at: www.buttermilkjamboree.org
Early Entry (Hours: Thursday 4-8pm, Friday 9-12am) will only be given to volunteers with shifts that start before 2pm on Friday, ALL Campground shifts on Friday, and shifts that start or continue through 8pm or later on Friday and Saturday. Friday Campground Volunteers are strongly encouraged to arrive on Thursday evening for orientation. Volunteers signing up for these shifts will be contacted individually with more information.
