The Ashkenaz Festival depends on the skills and energy of a diverse and committed group of volunteers. Whether you’re an Ashkenaz die-hard or it’s your first time at the festival, there is a volunteer contribution that you can certainly make! We hope that whatever your age and stage, you will consider joining our fun and rewarding volunteer team.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Ashkenaz Festival 2022 (August 30-September 5)! Volunteers are essential to our event; we couldn’t run our fabulous festival without you! We are endlessly grateful to those who choose to donate their time and skills to Ashkenaz, and we look forward to celebrating with you on site.

The 13th biennial Ashkenaz Festival is North America’s premier celebration of global Jewish music and culture. The Festival has historically boasted over 60,000 attendees, 90 acts, 250+ artists, events across the city, and culminates with Labour Day weekend celebrations and a parade at Harbourfront Centre.

The majority of volunteer roles will take place at the Main Festival at Harbourfront Centre September 3-5. There are a few pre-Festival roles that include Administrative Support, Marketing Support, Driving, and roles at our Special Concert series. Please email hillary@ashkenaz.ca with any questions.
