2022 CALL OUT FOR VOLUNTEERS
Want to be part of this year’s Huon Valley Mid-Winter Festival?
Each year the Huon Valley Mid-Winter Festival works with close to 50 volunteers ablaze with energy to help create good vibes for all festival goers.
It’s a great opportunity to meet people from your community, be part of a passionate team and it can also be a more affordable way of participating in the festival.
We’re looking for volunteers to help us out with getting the site ready before the festival, welcoming punters at the entrances, supporting artists while they’re onsite, tending the fires to keep everyone warm, COVID fairies, and last but not least we’re looking for passionate people to help us reduce our onsite waste – join us as a Waste Warrior!
We are also on the hunt for a Volunteer Coordinator. Think this could be you? Get in touch.
A big part of the festival is about being good to each other and creating a good vibe for all people to enjoy the festival in a relaxed and positive environment.
As a SMOOTH TALKER you’ll:
• Welcome festival goers and artist at the entrance gates
