Victoria Park Lantern Festival

Festival Day Volunteers

Volunteer application form:  http://tinyurl.com/LanternVolunteerForm

Each year, we have lots of fun making the Lantern Festival happen. This is a volunteer-driven event, which means that it cannot happen without volunteers (the more, the merrier!) In fact, the entire Lantern Festival is a creative group effort!

As you can imagine, we require the most volunteers on festival day! In 2015, the festival is scheduled for Saturday, July 25th with a rain date of Sunday, July 26th. Volunteers must be available on both days in case it rains on the Saturday.

Festival Day Volunteer Opportunities Include:

  • Lantern installation¬†(we provide training!)
  • Glass jar workshop volunteers
  • Merchandise tent volunteers
  • Event safety volunteers (we provide training!)
  • Information/Volunteer sign-In/Pool House security table volunteers
  • BBQ volunteers
  • Canteen volunteers
  • Volunteers in our Kids Zone
  • Lighting participants’ lanterns before the lantern parade
  • Lighting the installation lanterns
  • Wandering sellers
  • Donation gatherers
  • Programme distributors
  • Parking lot attendants
  • Puppeteers for the puppet show (will include some rehearsals)
  • Clean-up and takedown

Please send an email to lantern.volunteers@gmail.com during our on-season (beginning in early May and ending shortly after the festival) so that we can find the perfect festival day volunteer position for you!
