The most valuable donation is your time.CCM Vols 39

Each year the Festival recruits, trains and depends upon more than 1,500 volunteers to make the whole event happen. While mostly from Talbot County, some even travel from across the country simply for the fun of volunteering at our annual event. Festival planning and preparations go on year round, so volunteers are always needed for a multitude of tasks. More than 60 volunteer committee chairs invest hours of their time coordinating Festival details and they, in turn, depend on hundreds of others to help get things done. Volunteer opportunities are large and small, easy and hard. If you are looking for a way to serve the community and the Festival - and have a lot of fun, too! - we welcome you to join us.  To get more information about volunteering we invite you to review the opportunities and contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
