Volunteers

We need you! In order to run an event of this size, we count on the time, effort and support of close to 100 volunteers - thank you for considering giving back to your community in this way! Many positions are available for both experienced and new volunteers. There are opportunities all day, starting at 9 am through to 11 pm. Shifts range from 2 hours to all day; most shifts are four hours in length. If you have more time, you can continue in the same role or switch to something else. High school students can earn community hours toward graduation. We especially need mature volunteers to fill certain roles.

Perks!

To express our appreciation for the time, energy and enthusiasm you offer in giving back to the community, the Volunteer Team will provide the following to each volunteer:

  • a "volunteer" T-shirt*
  • a dinner coupon redeemable at one of our food trucks*
  • complimentary water, iced tea and snacks throughout the day
  • timely breaks, for those working extended shifts
  • training
  • a direct supervisor to provide assistance and guidance
    *=for those working during festival hours

The volunteer program is generously sponsored by Ward 10 City Councillor Sue McFadden.
