Canal Days® is a cherished "rite of summer" that we are committed to preserving for generations of families to come. Volunteering at the festival is one way to help ensure that this wonderful tradition continues.

When you volunteer, you are giving something back to the community, and you have the knowledge that you are helping make Canal Days® a success for thousands of residents and visitors each year.

We need your help to show the world what makes our festival the best part of summer. That is why we are asking interested residents to come forward and become volunteers for this year’s Canal Days® which runs from July 31 to August 3, 2020.

We would be honoured to work together with you to help visitors to our wonderful city experience the summer of their life.

Please see below for a number of volunteer opportunities:

Bar Service, Ticket sales, Ambassador/Information Liaison, Entry Gates and so much more!
