Help support the Festival from Behind the Scenes!

We are still looking for volunteers!

Want to enjoy a unique experience? Consider volunteering with the Sun Life Financial UpTown Waterloo Jazz Festival! The Festival is a volunteer-driven event that can only be staged with the help of wonderful people like you, generously donating their time.

So come join us for great music and a spectacular community of jazz lovers.

Volunteer perks include a free t-shirt, volunteer appreciation nights (including a Volunteer Orientation day prior to the festival), and of course the extra benefit of listening to a great line-up of fantastic musicians!

I’m convinced!
