Volunteers needed for Burlington’s Sound of Music Festival

LOGO_Sound of Music Festival

Burlington’s very popular Sound of Music Festival continues this weekend (Thursday, June 13-Sunday, June 16) and is looking for a few volunteers to lend a hand and help in making this year’s event just as successful as in previous years.

Organizers have said in order to keep this annual festival free, they rely heavily on their volunteers — it’s also a great opportunity for students looking to get their community service hours.

Volunteer shifts are usually around 4-6 hours and you are provided with a festival T-shirt and food vouchers.

Some of the available positions include selling merchandise, greeting guests in the VIP areas, selling tickets, backstage setup, working the eco-department, bartending and bar-backing. For a full list of positions and available shifts, head to the Sound of Music Festival’s website at or email

Help out your community and be a part of Halton Region’s biggest event of the year.

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
