Volunteer / Host a Musician







Hosting a Musician


Festival Mozaic relies on the generosity of dozens of individuals and families who open their homes to our musicians.  Hosting a musician in your home is a great way to get involved with Festival Mozaic and to get to know a musician!  If you are interested in hosting a musician in your home, please click here.





Volunteering with Festival Mozaic





Festival Mozaic relies on more than 60 volunteers each year to keep operations running smoothly.  Volunteers take tickets, direct parking, help to feed our musicians, and much more!  We are always seeking new volunteers to join our team.  If you would like to be a part of the Festival’s volunteer staff, work with fun people and enjoy great concerts, please fill out the Volunteer Information form found at the link above.

  • Ushers & Ticket Scanners
  • Concessions & Merchandise Sellers
  • Parking Lot Attendants
  • Backstage Hospitality
  • Special Events (wine pouring, table setting, etc.)



Time Commitment


Most volunteer shifts are approximately 4 hours long - you will arrive 1 hour before the event starts and will be released approximately 30 minutes after the event is over.  Some volunteer shifts will be longer or shorter, depending on the type of event.
