All Hands on Deck!

River Arts Festival seeks extra volunteers from October through until the end of  the Festival. These duties may include event set up, greeting guests, taking tickets or donations, and distributing event evaluations while attending fun creative events for free!  

Free Fun for Everyone!

All volunteers will be invited to enjoy Festival events, will receive training prior to their placements, receive insurance coverage under River Arts Festival and Haldimand Art Works on-site at the Main Gallery and on location at remote events, plus get behind-the-scenes views of some of Haldimand's most excitiing events. Plus, students will receive Community Service Hours!


Community Volunteers looking for a more long term commitment, are welcome to attend one of our RAF Planning Committee meetings to see if joining our Core Group of Planners would be the right fit for them. Our Core Group are responsible for making decisions, securing donors and sponsors, and sourcing creative talent. We're currently seeking volunteers with financial backgrounds, but welcome all interested volunteers to get in touch.

Festival Volunteer Positions will be posted soon. Please check back again or send us a message at
