    great experience

    By Kyle on June 13, 2018
    had a great time.

    Just a Taste

    By Nicole on May 8, 2018
    Kitchen closed half way through the event. My evening was already planned for the allotted time. Servers were forced o leave the venue. When explaining the legal implications (there were many!) the individual was rude and arrogant, and I was not at all satisfied with his demeanor toward me. I would seriously consider filing a conduct complaint to the board, for employing this individual. Speaking out of turn to his elders was NOT OKAY AT ALL.

    Welcoming Space

    By Sheila on March 18, 2018
    Worked alongside a great group during the St. Patrick's Day event and was hosted by a respectful volunteer management team. Volunteers were given some autonomy and were able to take ownership for our roles. Would happily return.

    Thoughtful and caring

    By Anton on June 26, 2017
    I found the 519 wonderful to volunteer for as they are very inclusive, caring of the health and wellbeing of volunteers and event attendees; was wonderful to be working amoungst people with the same values.

    Lots of fun and enjoying.

    A great way to help the community!

    By Victoria on July 5, 2016
    I participated in helping out with food service and it was a great experience! Be prepared that the Green Space Festival is definitely a highly attended event. Will, John, Oz, Patrick and Leslie were extremely helpful and a pleasure to volunteer with.

    Thanks again and will make every effort to open up my schedule for more volunteer shifts next year!

    Happy Pride!
