The DownEast Country Dance Festival

Ways to volunteer:


Yep! That's what this festival runs on.

Sign Up

To volunteer at the 2017 festival, fill out and submit the Google form here. Volunteer sign-up will close on Sunday, March 18 and the online application will close at that time. Any requests for changes to scheduled volunteer times or any cancellations should be made by that date.

Volunteering at the Festival

Dozens of dance and music lovers help the Festival run by volunteering to help with the many tasks that need to be done during the weekend. Many of our daytime festival performers also volunteer their talents instead of sharing in the proceeds.

Volunteer sign-up begins February 1st. Each volunteer receives a Friday-Saturday festival pass (the Festival Survivors Dance is not included) for fulfilling ONE of the following volunteer options:

Super Volunteers

The festival is fortunate to have a number of "Super Volunteers," volunteers who do a great deal of work beyond just the festival weeekend, but are not on the Festival Committee. Several current members of the Festival Committee were Super Volunteers before they become committee members.

The DownEast Country Dance Festival Committee

The Festival and Survivors Dance are planned by an all-volunteer committee. Meetings are collaborative; all ideas are discussed and work is delegated to make the festival a success.

Other Ways to Help Make it Happen

If you are interested in helping to make the festival a success, please contact us! You might have an idea we can use, or we might have a task you can help with during the year. Computer skills? Publicity experience? If you'd like to help, even if you don't know what you might want to do, you can talk with a committee memeber to sit in at a future committee meeting. You can also support the festival by buying and wearing a festival t-shirt!
