Different ways to donate
Become a Volunteer
Volunteerism is the “heart and soul” of the success of the Great Waters. Combined, volunteers contribute thousands of hours each year ensuring that Festival concerts and events are run smoothly. Beyond those volunteers who are visible – such as ushers, stage hands, and box office workers – are the great number of people behind the scenes.
They help with a variety of tasks associated with presenting the concerts, assist with office projects, and serve as members on various committees such as marketing, programming and development.
Even though the Festival events are seasonal, volunteers contribute their help throughout the year.
