Children’s Festival Volunteering

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 2022 Children's Festival!

The International Children's Festival has always depended on volunteers to keep this multi-day adventure for kids running every year. The volunteer superheroes perform a range of essential activities - everything from helping run workshops, to keeping the site clean, to introducing shows, to ushering one of our many Feature Performances.  

We strongly believe that there is a position at the Children's Festival for everyone. If you are curious about volunteering but cannot decide where to go or what to sign up for, please get in touch. We work hard to ensure our volunteers are valued and respected and want everyone to have a great volunteer experience.

Registration is NOW CLOSED for 2022! Thank you so much for your interest and we hope you'll join us for 2023!


All volunteers will need to complete a waiver form before they are able to sign up for shifts. Volunteers under 18 years of age need a parent or guardian to sign the youth waiver form, while volunteers 18 or over need to sign an adult waiver form. Be ready to sign up, by downloading the appropriate waiver form, signing it and having it ready to upload when you register.
