Calling All Volunteers!
Each year our Festival benefits from the efforts of about 150 volunteers. We figure over 1000 volunteer hours are dedicated to making the Stewart Park Music Festival happen -- it's a real community effort! Each year we ask the volunteers to do at least two 3-hour shifts (more if you are so inclined)in order to earn their coveted Festival Crew T-shirt.
Stewart Park Festival (SPF) will take place July 14-16, 2017 in Downtown Heritage Perth, Ontario. We are always Looking for volunteers!
You can sign up online right here, on the Volunteer Registration Page , indicating your preferred areas and shifts to work. There are many areas in which to work: For example, at the Entrance Gates, where you will welcome visitors entering Stewart Park. There are positions at the souvenir/Information Booth, the CD Booth and many other areas. See Volunteer Roles for more details. Alternatively, you can call the BIA Office at 613-267-3311 ext.2243
We Provide our volunteers with "Festival Crew" t-shirts, always in bright and vibrant colours. We also provide snacks backstage for volunteers during their shifts.

“…It was a great experience and I hope I can volunteer again next year. Was so impressed with the organization and everyone’s positive attitude on Friday night as the rain poured! You all did a fabulous job – thank you for all the hard work.” ~Ann
The weekend of the festival we need over 150 volunteers to keep everything running smoothly. It is safe to say that over 1000 hours are put into the Festival by volunteers every year, making SPF a real Community effort. For secondary school students we do offer volunteer hours that count towards your community service hours for graduation.
We host a Volunteer Orientation on the Tuesday before the Festival weekend.
