Make a Difference – Volunteer at TomTom!

by Tom Tom Staff


Tom Tom Foundation is a nonprofit that brings the Founders Festival – the Summits, Block Party, workshops, luncheons, Resident Artists, and more – to the community of Charlottesville; we aspire to keep it accessible and open to the public as much as possible. Who doesn’t love a free concert on a warm spring day in the heart of your favorite city?

The truth is: none of this is possible without our volunteers. Year after year,

we have been impacted by you. The success of the Festival thrives on the enthusiasm and endless spirit of our volunteers who work tirelessly alongside our team, dedicated to making the Festival a fun, fruitful, fulfilling experience for all attendees.

Another truth? Tom Tom Festival could not be a free event without our volunteers. Help keep Tom Tom free and donate your time and energy to one of the biggest annual events in Charlottesville!

Be part of something more. Celebrate and empower the creative, entrepreneurial, civic, and founders of the community and beyond with 300 speakers, 50 bands, and hundreds of events. You can make a difference. You can be part of Tom Tom!


Have you ever wanted to flex your bartending skills? Help set up or assist an event? Run your own booth?

Here is a peek at what some of the volunteer roles look like:

  1. Registration – get people checked in and point them in the right direction

  2. Serve Drinks – be one of the most popular volunteers at Tom Tom!

  3. Check IDs – maintain security and keep it organized

  4. Merchandise – run the booth that sells the top souvenirs!

  5. Set-Up and Break-Down – built Tom Tom from the ground up!

All of these opportunities and more are open for volunteers from April 9-15 at the Tom Tom Festival. Let us know your skills, interests, timeframe, and capacity! We will find the right fit for you, and accommodate your schedule! Send us your details and preferences here.
