March 4 & 5, 2023!

Volunteer for the 2023 Festival!!

Festival Staff / March 16, 2022

The Tucson Festival of Books depends on volunteers to run the event. The positive impact on the community is due to the dedicated individuals who assist in making the Festival friendly and welcoming to all of our guests.

No experience is necessary...all you need is a warm smile and a helpful attitude! Sign up for a shift, or two, or the whole weekend! To recognize your contributions, all volunteers will be provided with the special, limited edition 2023 volunteer t-shirt!


Our amazing volunteers make Tucson Festival of Books the premier book festival for authors, exhibitors and festival-goers from throughout the state and across the country. We offer nearly 2,000 opportunities so there is something for every volunteer...we hope you will join us!

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, provide your contact information and we will send you an email when volunteer registration becomes available.

Friend of the Festival members are entitled to select volunteer positions in advance of the general public. Many benefits exist to enhance the festival experience for those who become Friends. More information may be found here.
