The Litchfield Jazz Festival is a proud production of the not-for-profit Litchfield Performing Arts, Inc (LPA). LPA’s internationally renowned Litchfield Jazz Festival will make it’s 23rd appearance July 28 & 29, 2018. The Festival will be held at the Goshen Fairgrounds in Goshen, CT.

The weekend of the Festival, volunteers are needed from 8AM to 5PM on Friday 7/27 and 10AM to 10PM on Saturday 7/28 and  10AM to 9PM Sunday 7/29. Volunteers can opt for full or half-day shifts from 10AM – 4PM and 4PM – 10PM (9PM on Sunday). Volunteers are also needed during the week before the Festival, for strike Sunday night and the Monday after the Festival. Your help is what makes this Festival possible!


Poster/flyer distribution
This is easy and fun! Distribute brochures and posters in your area at local banks, post offices, restaurants and hot spots. And of course, pass them along to your friends! Call us at 860-361-6285 or email us to request materials.

Pre-festival set-up:
Able-bodied volunteers needed to help the tech crew with setting up on Monday, July 23rd through Friday, July 27th.

Post-fest strike:
Immediately after the Festival on Sunday night to help the tech crew load out. Did you ever participate in a play or show as a student? Strike is a fun way to close out a weekend of hard work and a job well done.

Day after Pack-up/ Clean-up:
NOT Glamorous but VITAL! And we will love you forever! Help pack signs and supplies and bring them to the storage unit on Monday, July 30th. Festival grounds need to be left clean so we will be welcomed back next year.
