37th Annual Bowers Mansion Bluegrass Festival

Thursday, Aug. 24 to Sunday, Aug. 27, 2023




​We can’t do this Festival without Volunteers!  Volunteers are THE MOST IMPORTANT thing that we have to get right!  We are committed to making the Volunteer experience fun and rewarding.  NOTE: Our Liability Insurance requires all Volunteers to be NNBA Members.


​For 2023, we ask Volunteers to commit to 6 hours, spread out into 2-hour (or more) shifts over the 4 days of the event.  What do you get for volunteering?

  • One All Access Pass (good for all performances)

  • a free Bar-B-Que dinner on Thursday (“kick off day”)

  • a T-shirt

  • snacks and water while “on the job”.

  • Additionally, we hold two parties for the Volunteers – one before the Festival (Orientation) and one after (Celebration), at a local eatery. 

Your hours can be organized into 2-hour (or longer) shifts in the following categories (must meet a minimum commitment of 6 hours):

  • Thursday – Set Up Crew at Washoe Lake State Park, starting at 10am.  Duties include making signs, marking campsites, setting up the pavilion for the Bar-B-Que, etc.

  • Friday – Set Up Crew at Bowers Park, starting at 9am  Duties include lifting and carrying heavy objects, setting-up canopies, tables, hanging banners, etc.  Morning coffee & pastries, as well as lunch is provided for Friday volunteers.  

  • Saturday – Festival Day, starting at 8am.  Duties include light lifting, organizing merchandise, handling money,  greeting customers, driving shuttle golf cart, staffing the Petting Zoo or the Raffle Tent, wrist-banding, running errands, etc.  Some duty stations do not have a view of the stage.
