Volunteer at the Festival

Join the festival team

The Sonoma Valley Authors Festival takes place at the Fairmont Hotel and Spa, but many memorable moments also take place during our free community events, including our Students Day and Authors on the Plaza celebrations. 

For these events we rely on dedicated book lovers, who volunteer their time to greet and register guests, offer directions, answer questions, and manage the crowd movement. Volunteers able work longer shifts and participate for multiple days are of our greatest need.

Due to limited capacity, volunteers are not guaranteed seats during author presentations and lectures, yet off-duty volunteers are invited to sit on on presentations when space permits.

Have a question? Want to volunteer? Reach out to us at admin@svauthorsfest.org or (707) 282-9028. We’d love to talk with you.
