The Gift of Time

We celebrate the generosity of our volunteers.

The effort and enthusiasm of our volunteers is integral to the success of PuSh. We saw their faces across the Festival, distributing program guides, driving artists, scanning tickets, ushering, providing administrative support in the office, and so much more. 

We simply couldn’t produce the Festival without their efforts.

In 2020, 129 volunteers gave nearly 2,700 hours of their energy, skills, and expertise.

Looking to Get Involved?

We have been overwhelmed by the positive response to our call for volunteers for this year’s Festival, and the amount of enthusiasm our supporters have to get back to live performances. Any new applicants from this point will be put on our backup list for the 2022 Festival, and will be among the first to be contacted for PuSh Festival 2023. Thank you for your support!

General information for 2022 Volunteers:
We want everyone to feel safe and be able to enjoy their time at the festival. Here’s a little information to help you decide whether you’ll be comfortable volunteering:

  • All staff, artists, volunteers, and audience members must be fully vaccinated. Some Front of House volunteers will be responsible for checking vaccine passports for audience members.
  • Masks are required indoors at all times except when eating or drinking. 
  • Venues will be sold at full capacity.                                    

We will be following the latest guidelines set out by health authorities, and as such, some of these policies may change by the time the festival starts.
