Welcome to the Volunteer Sign Up page for the Ogden Music Festival!
We need you! If you'd like to be a part of the all-volunteer Ogden Friends of Acoustic Music organization and help us make the Ogden Music Festival a success, we'd love to have you join our team! We've had amazing volunteers every year.
By working two 3-hour shifts, you gain free admission to the Ogden Music Festival, exclusive volunteer swag, and the satisfaction of helping to create and carry out this fabulous event. You’ll meet some wonderful folks, make life long memories and be an integral part of making the festival magic work. We couldn’t do it without you, our well-loved volunteers!
Please review the volunteer opportunities and times available to volunteer. Remember: you need to choose two non-peak shifts (or a total of six hours) or one peak shift (three hours during the headlining acts) to earn free entry for the entire festival (doesn't include camping). One non-peak shift will earn free entry only for the day you volunteer.
