Rooted in the Carolina foothills, the Night in the Country experience transforms the world-renowned Tryon International Equestrian Center into your next great country tradition.



One of the reasons Night in the Country is a successful event is due to our many volunteers who donate their weekend to ensure our patrons have a great time. 

Night in the Country offers our volunteers a chance to participate in the Give & Get Program. This program was founded in 2013 and serves a unique purpose for non-profit organizations. With this program each volunteer will be able to work for an hourly rate ranging from $8-$12. This will then be donated by Night in the Country to each volunteer’s chosen non-profit organization.



Volunteers are required to complete an online application form and pass a background check. The age requirement for volunteers is 18.  Applications will only be accepted through August 5, 2022.


Night in the Country works with several local non-profits groups to work in specific areas within our festival. The non-profit group would be responsible for recruiting the requested number of volunteers and in return Night in the Country would donate back to their organization. If you have group that would like to learn more about this option, please reach out to


Volunteer work schedules various depending on their specific duties and responsibilities. Most shifts occur the weekend of the event; however, some will begin work a week or two before the event and some will work after the event. While some volunteers work many more hours, we ask that volunteers work 12 hours in order to receiver full volunteer benefits. Your work dates and time schedule will be provided by the Volunteer Coordinator via email once you have been approved.


For donating your time and energy we will be providing all volunteers with a 3-day general admission pass for Night in the Country Carolina. This pass allows entry into the venue for the weekend. Along with the 3-day pass you will be provided with one free volunteer shirt. This shirt must be worn as a uniform and ONLY during your shift. We also have available meals and refreshments during your working shift, if applicable.

**Volunteer packets, volunteer pass, and shirts will be issued at the volunteer center when you arrive on-site for your job shift. **

 Your job placement and shift times will be sent out for your review and acceptance. The acceptance of your position needs to be completed before August 19, 2022.

**Limited Free Parking passes for volunteers available.**
