Victoria Highland Games and Celtic Festival
2017 Volunteers

General Volunteer Roles

Choose from one of our General Volunteer Roles supporting special areas that help to make the Games interesting and fun for visitors.  For example: the Information Tents, the Celtic Music Tent, the History Tent, the Heritage Tent, the Clan Area, the Food and/or Merchandise Vendors Area, the Parking Areas.  Volunteers must be 15 years or older, although younger volunteers may register with provided prior permission is granted by one of the Volunteer Co-Chairs.

Be sure to arrive at Topaz Park in advance of your shift(s).  Go to the "Will Call / Volunteer" table outside the Finlayson Street gate for your day-ticket, then sign in at the Volunteer Tent just inside the gate, collecting snack/lunch coupon(s) (and your volunteer t-shirt if you didn't make it to the orientation) at the same time.
