Children’s Festival Volunteering

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

Volunteer applications for new and returning volunteers are now open! Register to volunteer NOW by heading to our "Application Process" page, which will take your through all the steps you need to join our team! 

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 to run activities and keeping the site clean, to introducing shows and ushering patrons at 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.

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 and over need to sign an adult waiver form. Download the appropriate waiver form, sign it and have it ready to upload when you register.
