VOLUNTEERS MATTER TO US!
Calling All 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 our Festival benefits from the efforts of about 150 volunteers. 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 on the 3rd weekend of July every summer in Downtown Heritage Perth, Ontario. We are always Looking for volunteers!
There Are Roles For Everyone!
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 and refreshments 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
As we mentioned above, on the weekend of the festival we need over 150 volunteers to keep everything running smoothly. 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.
