    THANK YOU for volunteering at Toronto Ribfest 2017! Some hints as you register through Kindness Connect, our new service provider:

    1. Don't forget your PASSWORD. It gives you lots of options to manage your shifts.
    2. July 1 is a CELEBRATION day and we especially need lots of volunteers! Bonus: Fireworks!
    3. When you sign up for 2 SHIFTS IN A ROW, you get a free voucher for food - e.g. burger, sandwich etc.
    4. One person in the group should sign up and tell us, in the last part of the application, the names and ages of all those who will be volunteering.
    5. Parking can be a challenge. We encourage groups to arrange car pooling or use TTC.
    6. If you have members who would like to take on other roles at the event, they should sign up individually under the appropriate Opportunity.

    We look forward to seeing you at Toronto Ribfest!

    Set Up and Tear Down

    We need lots of help setting up the park for Ribfest - unloading, setting up tables and chairs, putting up signs, etc. When Ribfest is over, we have only one day to return the park to its original state! We need many hands to take things down, pack and load, do a final clean up, etc. If you have ever been to Ribfest you will find it fascinating to be part of the beginning and end!

    Green Team + Supervisors

    Toronto Ribfest is committed to being Greener and our goal is to divert 85% of the festival’s waste away from landfills. We want to be the cleanest and Greenest Festival site in the city! Working in teams, volunteers will sort and ensure that resources are diverted appropriately. They will also ensure our eating areas and the site are neat and clean. This is a great way to come and work as a team with your friends and family!
