CMA Music Festival is an enormous four-day event in Downtown Nashville each June that requires the dedication of hundreds of volunteers who tirelessly give their time and energy. Volunteers for the event are seen as ambassadors, people who will represent the best this city has to offer with hospitality and a spirit of community that is known around the world.
If you are interested in volunteering, e-mail Volunteers@CMAworld.com
There are some requirements to volunteer: You must be at least 18 years old, in good physical health and able to work a minimum of two days during the four-day Festival.
Many of the jobs require standing for long periods, extensive walking, some light lifting and outside duties in the summer heat (and possible rain). Jobs range from manning the information booths, to handing out product samples, to keeping the photo lines running smoothly. Some posts require a valid Tennessee driver’s license.
