Volunteers

Kelowna Ribfest Volunteers

Volunteers are the backbone to our Kelowna RibFest. RibFest is 100% volunteer driven. From the planning committee to the people at the gate to the cleanup crew, everyone at Kelowna RibFest is donating their time to bring you the best summer event around!

One of the biggest benefits of being exclusively run by volunteers is that it allows 100% of the proceeds to go back into local community causes. While you’re here at Kelowna RibFest, be sure to thank a volunteer for their hard work and dedication to making our event a huge success.

Why volunteer?

If you need to earn community hours, gain leadership experience, or just want to meet new people and have fun at a great, music-filled event, why not volunteer at this year’s Kelowna RibFest?

By volunteering, you’ll be helping us show people in Kelowna a great time over a beautiful summer weekend. You’ll also be supporting our mandate of putting 100% of the Kelowna RibFest proceeds into good causes. Plus you’ll have so much fun!
