Every year, hundreds of events take place across Cornwall - ranging from concerts and festivals to carnivals and fun-runs - and they all have one thing in common.....they all rely on volunteers in order to take place.
Event volunteering can be a great way to give your time - it offers all the fun of regular volunteering but often condensed into one or two days. Roles can include marshalling & stewarding, collecting monies, giving out flyers or freebies, providing advice and assistance to visitors or sometimes can involve more unusual requests like dressing up or getting stuck in to the fun and games!
There are as many different roles as there are events. This page will list all of the events we are aware of together with details of how to volunteer. Please note that as Volunteer Cornwall is not involved in running any of these events directly, we are not responsible for the recruitment process or the experience on the day but we do work closely with many of the major events around the county to ensure that their expectations of volunteers is realistic and that volunteers get the recognition they deserve.
So why not give it a go? It can be great as a one-off experience alone or with friends and family and who knows...you might get a taste for it :-)
Please note these events are listed in date order of the event so if you are visiting this page regularly you will need to scroll through to see any new opportunities.
Please Contact Us if you would like us to promote your event to potential volunteers.
