BECOME A VAIL JAZZ AMBASSADOR
The Vail Jazz Festival runs over a 12-week period every summer, consisting of five performance series and three educational programs. Each year the Vail Jazz Festival brings over 60 performances and 200 artists to Vail!
With such a busy summer, Vail Jazz relies on its volunteers, the Vail Jazz Ambassadors, to assist with a variety of responsibilities and ensure that the Festival runs smoothly. Vail Jazz could not operate without the unselfish support of numerous friends and volunteers who provide assistance, advice, moral support and plain old hard work. We thank each and every one of you for your contributions!
Vail Jazz also hosts a Winter Series, so opportunities for Vail Jazz Ambassadors are ongoing and we can use your help any time of year!
What does an ambassador do?
Over the summer, we have a wide variety of opportunities to help out at our different performance series. From Sunday mornings at the Vail Farmers’ Market to high-energy Thursday nights at Vail Square in Lionshead, we need your assistance to help the Vail Jazz team put on our incredible events!
Event opportunities include:
> ticket sales, registration and will call
> merchandise sales
> greet / usher guests
> stage crew
General opportunities include:
> concierge outreach
> sign and poster around town
> silent auction solicitation
Our way of saying ‘thanks’
We truly appreciate your spirit of volunteerism, and we want to make your involvement fun and rewarding. We have a ticket redemption system, so you can trade in your hard-earned hours for some world-class jazz tickets! Plus, every Vail Jazz Ambassador receives a commemorative annual Vail Jazz Festival t-shirt.
