Docks Volunteer

This position involves walking the docks. In our bright yellow shirts, we are very visible to the public and to the boaters. We are asked questions, help people to find particular boats and provide over all safety and security on the docks. This position also works ice sales, and first thing in the morning, and around 230, we send one or two volunteers around and ask the boaters if they need ice. This position is 4 hours long, and works between the main floats in front of the Empress, and the Ship Point docks.

Donations Volunteer

Donations are a big part of the festival, and last year we had over $20 000.00 in donations from just the docks alone! Those donation buckets were overflowing. And you, the volunteers had a big part in that!This position involves standing at the top of the dock, asking people for a donation as they enter the festival, and handing out programs and stickers to everyone. This takes place at the top of the dock at the Empress floats, and also at Ship Point where the Marketplace is.


Check-In and Support

This position is located at the Maritime Museum where we will base our Volunteer Headquarters. This position will be waiting to greet the volunteers as they check in and out of their shift.There will be food, water drinks etc in the kitchen for the volunteers, and they are able to come up to the museum for their breaks.

If you are a Museum Volunteer already, this may be just for you as you are familiar with the ins and outs of the Museum!
