Volunteer at Festival du Voyageur: Immerse Yourself in Western Canada’s Culture and History

If you are looking for a meaningful and rewarding way to spend your winter break, why not consider volunteering at Festival du Voyageur? This annual 10-day festival celebrates Canada’s fur-trading past and unique French heritage and culture through entertainment, arts and crafts, music, exhibits, and displays. It takes place in Winnipeg’s French quarter, Saint-Boniface, every February.

As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to help with various tasks such as greeting visitors, selling tickets, setting up stages, serving food and drinks, cleaning up after the event, and more. You will also get to enjoy the festive atmosphere of the festival, meet new people from different backgrounds and cultures, learn new skills and gain valuable experience.
