The volunteers of the Castlemaine State Festival are an integral part of our team who share their time, experience and talents to support our programs, and help us maintain a high standard of public service. In turn the festival provides support, skills development opportunities, and a wide range of volunteering experiences.

The festival relies on over 150 volunteers in both the lead up to, and delivery of the festival, and the roles are many including; administration, production support, event management, ticketing, hospitality, marketing, artist liaison, transportation and accommodation.
