Where would the Jacksonville Jazz Festival be without its volunteers?
It is no secret that the Jacksonville Jazz Festival is coming – every year, like clockwork, for the past 38 years. What people may not know is what makes the festival “tick.” It’s volunteers! Without the countless donated hours from hundreds of volunteers each year, the festival would not be the tradition it is today.
Volunteers are involved in every aspect of the festival. From making sure VIP is looking stellar and setting up the merchandise store to driving performers to stages and guiding attendees. There is a role for everyone looking to be a part of this iconic downtown event.
This being said! What are you waiting for? Join us and be a part of Jacksonville Jazz Festival history. Come make memories!
