36th Annual Bowers Mansion Bluegrass Festival
Friday, Aug. 19 to Sunday, Aug. 21, 2022
We have booked all the bands and reserved the infrastructure (audio crew, campground, stage, porta potties, tents, etc.). The schedule is shaping up, and there are some exciting new features to the festival – a Friday night show on the stage at Bower’s, a Beer Garden for Friday night and all day Saturday and Security provided by a professional Search and Rescue Squad. Also new will be a Volunteer Orientation in mid July, where we’ll gather at a local eatery, munch on appetizers (provided for you!), get to know each other and learn more about the specific duties that we all will have. And we’re planning a Volunteer Appreciation event in September, too. Of course, every volunteer also gets a free T-shirt, snacks and water during their duties.
We can’t do this Festival without Volunteers! Volunteers are THE MOST IMPORTANT thing that we have to get right! We are committed to making the Volunteer experience fun and rewarding, and well worth your time. We are open to your suggestions at any time, before during or after the Festival.
Below you’ll find a list of the duty slots that we need help with. You’ll notice that most of them entitle you to a free Festival ticket (over $30 value). There are also some “half slots” available (2.5 hours) that entitle you to ½ price tickets ($15).
