Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Mile of Music, August 1-4, 2019 (also known as Mile 7)! Without your help, we would not be able to help make the music happen. With 900+ live music sets over 4 days in 60 venues, your help is truly appreciated. Volunteer efforts for 2019 are supported by Country Financial. This year, to show our appreciation for your help in making this one-of-a-kind event happen, we will be thanking you in the following ways:
1) A new volunteer lounge is being created by Country Financial in the Founders Room of the Fox Cities P.A.C...just for you!
2) A Volunteer Appreciation Evening will be held on Wednesday, August 7 in conjunction with Concerts in the Courtyard. It will be a chance for The Mile Team to say thank in-person!
3) A cool, fun volunteer shirt for you to wear during your shift and keep as a souvenir!

We are MOST IN NEED of the following shifts for 2019: Beverage Sales/Wristbands, Main Stage Positions, Perimeter
