SappyFest XI : July 29 – 31

23 Bridge Street

PO Box 6443

Attention ex-lovers & future friends—

Greetings from the Republic. Flowers are blooming, the summer air is sweet, and SappyFest XI is on the horizon. This year, the festival will take place from July 29 - 31 in Sackville, NB, and we are currently seeking folks to get involved through our numerous volunteer opportunities. This is a great way to become part of the Sappy swamp magic and contribute to the inner workings of the festival!

Volunteers are needed for security, hospitality, transportation, selling merchandise, bar-tending, recycling, stage production, for the box office, campground, and as runners. These jobs, and an array of others, help to keep us afloat during the festival weekend. Volunteering has many perks, including free festival passes. Working one volunteer shift (approximately 4 hours) gets you a day pass for the day you work, and three shifts entitles you to a full festival pass. Many people find that volunteering is the best way to enjoy the festival and meet like-minded people and performers. Some volunteer crews are strictly 19+, but youth volunteers are encouraged and welcome to participate (with signed permission from a legal guardian).

If any of these volunteer opportunities peak your interest, please click HERE for more information, crew descriptions, and for our application application form.

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or just want to say hello, please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Katharyn Stevenson, at coordinator@sappyfest.com.

Make sure to check us out on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates on the festival and upcoming local events.
