We Love Our Volunteers!

Wordfest works with approximately 100 volunteers each year. A small cohort of front of house volunteers help with our year-round in-person programming (approximately 4 positions per show). For our Fall Imaginairium Festival, we scale up our team to 50-75 volunteers who help in a variety of areas: front of house, bar service, venue setup & strike, and ground transportation.

If you are a new or returning volunteer looking to help out at the upcoming Fall Imaginairium (Oct. 11-15, 2023) or at our events throughout the year, please complete the form below or contact us at volunteers@wordfest.com.


Please Note: New Applications for Volunteering at the 2023 Imaginairium (Oct. 11-15) are Now Closed

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at our annual festival. If you are looking to help out at our year-round events or at next year’s fall festival in 2024, please complete the form below to express your interest and you will be contacted when opportunities become available.
