After several years absence, EBC is once again supervising the bicycle parking at the Heritage Festival. This festival has been one of our most effective outreach and fundraising events in the past, with tens of thousands of people arriving on bicycles over the course of the weekend, and we're very excited to be back.
We have two volunteer roles: we need volunteers to help monitor the bike parking (no experience or training necessary).
Both roles are extremely valuable, and generating donations and helping people learn about EBC.
Volunteers can eat and drink all day in the volunteer compound, as well as take turns exploring the festival itself (as long as at least one volunteer remains with the bikes and volunteers remain in contact with each other in case both are needed). Patrons often donate food tickets to volunteers at the compound as well, which volunteers are welcome to share and use.
Volunteering at Heritage Festival increases your priority for other events, such as volunteering for us at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival (where volunteers receive a free ticket).
