The Rhythm N’ Blooms volunteer program is a perfect opportunity to get involved within the community, meet new people, and listen to great music while enjoying a great volunteer experience.

For every four-hour shift you complete, you receive a free day pass. If you successfully complete 3 four-hour shifts, you are eligible to receive a free weekend pass.
You will receive a commemorative Rhythm N' Blooms Volunteer Shirt.
**please note that volunteer shirts are limited. We cannot guarantee sizes or quantity of shirts for everyone.**
You can request a “volunteer buddy.” This system allows you to volunteer with your friends. We try our hardest to assign groups of 2,3 or 4 in order to accomplish your volunteer tasks as a team. When you sign up for your shifts, you are given the option to list your buddy (or buddies’) name(s).
There are many other benefits to being a part of the volunteer team that will be revealed after you sign up. We cannot wait to meet all of you and kick off this festival together!
