The 154th Victoria Highland Games & Celtic Festival is fast approaching and we are looking for energized and committed people to join our volunteer team this year! It is a great opportunity for students to connect with the community, gain volunteer experience, and build their resumes.

We would highly appreciate it if you could spread the word about this great opportunity!

About the event:

The 154th Victoria Highland Games & Celtic Festival will be the largest in its history in 2017. This is also the largest Scottish cultural event and only 3 full day Games in Western Canada, and our festival continues to grow each year – over 25,000 people are anticipated at Topaz Park (Topaz Ave & Finlayson Street & Blanshard Street, Victoria, BC) on May 20, 21 and 22 in 2017. 


We are looking for people to volunteer on May 20, 21, and 22.  


There are a wide variety of roles in the following categories:

- General roles

- Gates, Merchandise Sales, Beer Garden tickets (adults only)

- Children's Area 

- Highland Dance Competition area (competition experience preferred).

All volunteers will receive an orientation (May 15, 6 pm), a free t-shirt, free entrance to the Games on the day(s) they volunteer, and a free lunch... not to mention a memorable experience! Statement of volunteer hours will be made available to those volunteers who need one.

Thank you,
