2018 Volunteer Information







Each year Grand Nationals Weekend is staffed and supported by dedicated blues music folks. Most volunteer their time and effort to help ensure the Peoria Blues & Heritage Music Festival experience is enjoyed by every attendee. It is this dedication that helps make our festival what it is!

Thank you for your interest in the 24th Grand Nationals Weekend Volunteer Program! We really depend on volunteers to help us to put on our wonderful festival so therefore we really do depend on you to show up and work the time slot(s) you offer to work.

The following is some helpful information

to review prior to signing up.

All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. If you are applying for an alcohol concessions position, you must be 21 years of age or older with a valid ID to present during check in.


All shifts will average 5-6 hours.

After signing up, someone from the department you requested to work with will contact you regarding your acceptance and go over details of your duties and shift times. You are not guaranteed a position just by applying. Positions are limited and will be confirmed by the department manager. Shift times will vary. Please let us know of your availability in the “special request” section for both days at the festival. The more flexible you are with your availability will increase your volunteer opportunities!
