The Savannah Book Festival would not happen without the tireless efforts of close to 200 volunteers.  

To ensure a successful Festival, we need the help of scores of volunteers! The duties are mostly physically light and social. Please see below for a specific list of jobs available before and during the Festival. A number of volunteer opportunities with varying time commitments are available. The Festival runs February 16-19, 2023.
