Harvest Helps Volunteer Initiative

Each year over 1000 volunteers from Fredericton and beyond come together to make the beloved Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival a success. In lieu of our 30th anniversary in 2020, we are inviting our dedicated volunteers to ‘pass on’ their Harvest volunteer hours to another organization, business, community member or neighbour in need. If you complete 20 hours or more by the end of National Volunteer Week on April 24th, 2021, you’ll receive a special Harvest 29.5 volunteer shirt!

Please follow the steps below to participate in the Harvest Helps community initiative:


Begin by logging in or registering on https://app.initlive.com/JE/vz6q7bn4s7az8d (it is the same platform that was used for volunteers to sign up to help out for our festival). To receive your shirt, you need to indicate your size when you sign up.


Once you have signed up and/or logged in, you can choose from all of our volunteering opportunities that are listed as roles. Please select the ones where you wish to volunteer.


Complete your hours!


How will I receive the special Harvest 29.5 volunteer shirt?

Once you have completed your 20 hours, email us at lucas@harvestjazzandblues.com telling us your volunteering story (where you volunteer, did you enjoy the experience, how was it, etc.). We will be in contact afterwards to let you know when you can come to pick up your shirt.

Can I volunteer for an organization that is not listed?

YES – Simply choose “other organization” as your role.

Can I do more than 20 hours?

YES – We encourage every volunteer to do as many hours as they can.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to lucas@harvestjazzandblues.com.
