Volunteers - the Heartbeat of the Festival

If you are looking for a meaningful involvement as a volunteer in support of the arts, the Festival has lots of opportunities.

We need volunteers in the weeks before the Festival to assist with receiving visual art submissions and setting up more than 100 pieces of art in various venues throughout downtown Dunnville.


During the Festival we need volunteers to staff our children's gallery, assist at events and welcome people to venues and events. 


We will train you and we know from experience that you will enjoy yourself!

Or, if you want to have a major impact, would you like to join our planning committee? We meet once a month from December through August, then twice a month in September and October. We need energetic, committed individuals who share our vision that the Arts are an essential part of the human experience!

volunteer@riverartsfestival.ca or call 905 772 7000 and leave a message.

Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy.  You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.  ~Author Unknown
