Join Our Volunteer Team!

Your support would be most welcome! A myriad of opportunities are available year-round in production (set-up and take-down), hospitality, special events, box office, festival shop, bar tending, book sale, ushering, distribution of rack-cards and posters  and general office work. Volunteering is a critical component in the success of the Elora Festival & Singers programs and a major contributor to the fabric of the community. Benefits to our volunteers include the privilege of viewing the concerts assigned when not on duty, volunteer appreciation events, connecting with other music lovers and supporting your community. We invite you to consider this activity as a rewarding personal experience!

Become a Billeting Host!

One of the most exciting and rewarding volunteer positions that The Elora Festival offers is the opportunity to host one or more of our guest artists in your home. The intimate setting of The Elora Festival means that many of our world-renowned guest artists require accommodations in the homes of our generous community residents. Guest artists have told us time and time again that they love staying in the village so they can enjoy the charm and beauty of Elora and Fergus. Billeting offers our artists a warm welcome to the Festival as well as the comfort and personal hospitality not offered in a hotel. Our volunteer hosts enjoy the chance to meet some incredible performers from around the world. Our active hosts have made many precious memories from their time as billetors including summer evening chats about music and art, overhearing their guest warm up before a performance, and getting the chance to host an up-and-coming artist before everyone knows his or her name! We warmly invite you to participate as a guest artist host during the Elora Festival.

Billeting has been a positive experience for us and we have been fortunate to share our home with wonderful young people from both Canada and England. This year we have the pleasure of welcoming back the young man we billeted last year. As with many others in Elora billeting has become a tradition we intend to continue.
