2019 General Volunteer Roles

Welcome to the Volunteer Signups for the VICTORIA Highland Games and Celtic Festival!  You’ll see above that this is one of three ‘tabs’: general roles, gates and information tents, and Highland dance competition.  we recommend looking through all tabs before choosing the role(s) you want to do.

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 Celtic Music Tent, the History Tent, the Heritage Tent, the Clan Area, the Merchandise Vendors Area, the Beer Gardens.  Volunteers must be 15 years or older although younger volunteers may register provided prior permission is granted by one of the Volunteer Co-Chairs.  For roles handling money and/or located in the Beer Gardens, volunteers must be 19 years old or older.

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.
