Midsumma Festival takes place in Melbourne and surrounding suburbs and runs from 19 January to 10 February 2019. We produce two signature events Midsumma Carnival at Alexandra Gardens in Melbourne CBD on Sunday 20 January and Midsumma Pride March in St Kilda on Sunday 3 February, as well as a suite of smaller cultural events.
The information provided is essential to understand how the volunteer process works. Please ensure you read everything before agreeing to sign up!
We need a team of friendly, motivated and committed volunteers to make the magic happen. Our team values revolve around reliability, efficiency, professionalism and enthusiasm and this is what we look for when getting together our powerhouse of volunteers!
Ideally, as a part of your volunteering commitment you will work at least one shift at Carnival and/or Pride March.
When volunteering we ask our team to be wary of weather forecasts and to pack appropriately for these conditions. While on shift we ask you to be prepared ahead of time in case of varying conditions (ie rain jacket, cap, beanie, sunscreen, closed toe shoes, umbrella) because as you know, the show must go on in wind, rain or shine!
