Hey there! You're looking at an older version of the Stringband Jamboree site. Would you like to look at this year's site?

The Subdued Stringband Jamboree is a volunteer-run festival and we need your help! Each year, 50+ volunteers work to make the Jamboree happen. In exchange, volunteers get entry into the festival and a dose of civic pride! Volunteers during the festival are required to work 2-3hrs per day to receive a pass. Many volunteer shifts happen before and after the festival. The Jamboree's volunteer staff is always growing and evolving. If you'd like to be involved, please contact us!

Below is a brief description of some of the volunteer jobs.

Before the Festival

  • The Publicity Team: The Jamboree is in need of many people who love the festival and want to spread the word. This can take the form of hanging posters, handing out flyers, spreading the word on listservs and blogs, going to other regional festivals and hanging posters, and many other things. Please inquire.
