Volunteers are essential in making an event a great success. As you can imagine, we require several volunteers to cover all aspects of activities on the grounds—from early morning to late evening.
Volunteering is one of the best ways to support and contribute to the festival. Our volunteers share a passion for the festival and Italian culture, a foundation that continually inspires the growth and engagement of a thriving volunteer community, which we often refer to as our ‘famiglia’. Make new friends, help put on a world class festival, and enjoy the atmosphere!
Our volunteers are our ambassadors. We want to create the best experience possible for everyone involved, which means treating fellow volunteers, performers, patrons and others with respect and kindness.
We are grateful for the energy, enthusiasm, and dedication volunteers bring to our event. Volunteers perform many duties that help make Mississauga Italfest a successful event.
