Volunteering for Ice on Whyte

The Ice on Whyte Festival is excited to accept new and returning volunteers to the 2018 festival! The Ice on Whyte Festival is a great opportunity for you to get involved in your community, meet new people, and be part of an exceptional team!

Ice on Whyte volunteers possess unique characteristics:

  • Appreciation for winter
  • Adoration for fun
  • Affection for outdoor activities

In 2017, 108 fantastic volunteers contributed over 2,600 hours of service that helped to make last year such a success! We look forward to hearing from you and having you as a part of our 2018 Festival Team!

Volunteer Benefits

As part of the Ice on Whyte Festival team, volunteers will enjoy the outdoors and a fun-filled, rewarding, learning experience.

Volunteer duties are assigned upon arrival to the festival. Refreshment and warming breaks, complete with hot chocolate and a snack, are provided for each shift. If it is a cold day, hand warmers will keep you cozy to help volunteers enjoy their experience.

Volunteers who complete all of their scheduled shifts are invited to the wrap-up-party complete with drinks, snacks, games, and prizes. So, make sure you complete all of your shifts, enjoy the wrap-up party and be appreciated!
