*Updated 10/31/22: Our volunteer application for 2023 is currently closed and we have selected volunteers for the event. However, we are open to a waitlist. If you may be interested in volunteering at IBF in 2024 or sometime in the future, please feel free to submit your application. Thank you!
Volunteers of IBF will be required to run errands before and during the event. Tasks include directing crowds, capturing content for social media (IG reels/TikTok), signing readers in, and leading games/trivia. If chosen, you will be gifted with an IBF volunteer shirt to wear during the event and a VIP tote bag filled with bookish items. You will be responsible for your own lunch meals.
Volunteers must be 18 or older.
Volunteers are asked to arrive at 8:00 a.m. at the NPC to meet with the event manager and receive their assignments. Volunteers are also encouraged to attend the VIP hour and visit with the authors before general ticket holders are admitted. We will be sending you alerts and updates via text/email. This is a temporary volunteership, necessary only for the festival event. If selected to join us, we will email you with a formal invite before or by February 1, 2023. You will have 7 days to respond and confirm before the position is given to another volunteer.
