What Do We Want?

The Baton Rouge Blues Festival is looking for utilitarian people. Don’t want to serve beer, hawk merchandise, or have to regularly interact with festival attendees? No problem, this is totally the opportunity for you, you are the behind-the-scenes people. General volunteers will handle a variety of different tasks including (but certainly not limited to): setting up before and tearing down after the Festival, helping with the logistics of moving supplies around the Festival area to where they are needed, general manual labor, driving carts and utility vehicles around the Festival area, and other duties as required. Each volunteer shift will cover three hours and volunteers may sign up for more than one shift.

What Do You Get?

Volunteers will receive a Baton Rouge Blues Festival Volunteer T-shirt, be invited to attend a post-Festival Thank-You Party, and, of course, feel the warm tingling in your heart of helping to preserve and sustain a treasured part of Baton Rouge’s culture: the Blues.
