Choose Your Team!

The first step to becoming a Fringe volunteer is to choose a team to join. We have 11 volunteer teams to choose from that each support a different aspect of the Festival. Follow the links to find out more about each team’s duties and requirements, and to apply.

We ask that volunteers choose a single team to join so they can become experts in a certain area of the Festival. The one exception is the Host Team. Volunteers are welcome to join the Host Team (which does not have traditional shifts during the Festival), and one additional team. There may be opportunities for volunteers to pick up shifts on other teams during the Fringe.

Volunteer applications for the 2022 Fringe are now closed.
