Volunteer at the Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival

The Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival is still seeking volunteers to join the team. Every year, 600 generous volunteers contribute more than 5,000 hours of service to the Canadian International Dragon Boat Festival Society’s many initiatives.

“It’s a popular volunteer gig and many volunteers sign up year after year,” says General Manager Ann Phelps.

“Dozens of our volunteers just keep coming back,” adds Ann. “They have made friends, they like being part of this well-known event and we are happy to have them. We encourage others interested in being part of the fun to sign up – it’s not too late.”
