High Performance Rodeo Volunteers




The High Performance Rodeo is just one of the ways to volunteer with One Yellow Rabbit, but it might be the most thrilling. There are many opportunities to volunteer throughout the year and we are always looking for folks who are passionate about the arts to join the volunteer team. 


The High Performance Rodeo is made possible with the support of the fabulous team of volunteers that come out year after year to help us produce the festival. If you’re as passionate about the arts as we are, and want to help us continue to make the #HPRodeo a welcoming environment for audiences, then join our volunteer team!



Volunteer opportunities for the #HPRodeo may include:

assisting with audience care; including greeting patrons, handing out programs, scanning tickets, ushering patrons to their seats, cleaning up the theatre post-show, and assisting with other pre-post-show duties

assisting Rodeo staff with Rodeo preparation; including button-making, assembling artist welcome packages, assembling festival passes, and other administrative tasks

Requirements for volunteering the #HPRodeo:

The majority of volunteer shifts during the High Performance Rodeo take place in the evening, generally from six until nine. Occasionally, there are afternoon shifts available, typically on weekends. The volunteer schedule is posted and volunteers have the opportunity to sign-up for shifts according to their availability; however, we require that all #HPRodeo volunteers commit to a minimum of three shifts over the course of the Rodeo. 

Perks of volunteering at the #HPRodeo:

The main perk of volunteering at the Rodeo is free tickets! Volunteers attend the performance they volunteer at, for free! If you volunteer for administrative tasks, you’ll receive a complimentary ticket to use at any performance during the festival. Other benefits include feeling fabulous after helping create one of Calgary’s hottest cultural events, and being part of a dynamic and inclusive community that loves the arts.
