Well over two-hundred volunteers contribute annually to keep the Tucson Folk Festival running smoothly. The Tucson Folk Festival can only happen each year with volunteer support. It’s such fun to be a part of this event and we love our volunteers!
As a volunteer, you help TKMA present Arizona’s largest free to the public music festival, a beloved annual event on the Tucson calendar since 1986. All festival volunteers will receive an official Tucson Folk Festival Volunteer T-Shirt at check in, as well as their choice of a free raffle ticket or a free beverage ticket to redeem after your shift!

We also are actively in need of volunteers throughout the year for our various fundraisers, concerts, and membership events. If you would like to be a Festival or TKMA volunteer, please sign up at the links below.
And thank you! We can’t make this happen without our volunteers! Our incredible volunteers truly enable the Tucson Folk Festival to remain FREE to the public since 1986!
