Fringe Volunteers are at the heart of what makes this festival tick. You’ll gain valuable experiences, practice new skills, make tons of friends, and contribute to making our festival one of the best in the world. In addition to our undying gratitude, Festival volunteers get their own swanky t-shirt , and have the opportunity to earn comps to see shows for free.

Each year during our summer programming, more than 300 volunteers step up to cover over 3,000 shifts (that’s over 4,200 hours!). These volunteers ensure performances run on schedule while keeping our patrons happy. Yeah, it’s pretty incredible.

Simply put, we couldn’t do what we do without volunteers. 

Whether you are a first-timer or a ten-year veteran, we can't wait to work with you! What sorts of jobs do Fringe Volunteers do? Well, we have something for everyone: check out our volunteer opportunities!

Earning ticket vouchers to see shows

After the first three volunteer hours (for which you earn your awesome t-shirt!), volunteers start accruing one ticket voucher for every performance they work. Box Officer shifts are 90 minutes long and cover one performance. Usher shifts are 3 hours long and cover two performances. Maverick shifts are 3 hours long and cover 2 performances.

Volunteers wear their cool t-shirts during shifts, and have the opportunity to earn more swag and perks the more they help out (like buttons, coffee, and tickets, oh my!).
