TCFF Opportunities for Managers!

TCFF Managers play a pivotal role on an amazingly talented, incredibly devoted and super fun festival Team.

The festival couldn’t run without the many managers that spend a part of their summer in the most beautiful place on earth working with the best team on earth. It’s a great way to make new friends or spend time with your friends and family – lots of venues are run by teams of families and friends who love the festival and love to volunteer together. Help us put on the best festival in the world and have tons of fun along the way!

We’re looking for smart, hard-working, fun people who love the festival and thrive in a team environment. We ask that you commit to one shift per day for the duration of the festival. Previous experience is not required, but it helps. We are more than happy to train you! Hooray for learning new things and meeting new people!

If you can spare the time, we can promise you an unforgettable experience!
