Volunteering General Information

The Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival would not be as successful as it is today without the many hard-working volunteers that contribute their time and energy to this annual event. In support of the continued growth and success of RBJF, we are always looking for volunteers who would like to assist our patrons in a variety of ways. From non-technical to technical, we have opportunities to fit a variety of skills. Not only do you get to work with great people, you also get to watch and listen to some of the best live music! Listed below are a few volunteer guidelines. We want everyone to have a great Jazz Festival experience!

Volunteer personnel will need to register their interest in volunteering with Delaware Celebration of Jazz, promoters of the Festival, and be confirmed and assigned their schedule to participate
Volunteers who register will receive an email immediately that their registration has been completed successfully.  Then, within the next 10 days, newly registered Volunteers will be contacted by a Festival Representative confirming show/venue requests.  If do not receive a registration confirmation OR show/venue confirmation in a timely manner, please email us at or leave a voice message at 302.569.9112. 
We do our best to place Volunteers in one, if not two, shows that they prefer to work.  There will be cases where you will not be offered your first or second show choices due to existing staffing.  However, our Director of Volunteers will due her best to place Volunteers with their choices.  If these choices are not available, you will be given the opportunity to work other shows.
