KidFest 2017 Needs Our Help!

KidFest 2017 marks our 25th anniversary of being at Parksville Community Park and takes place on Sunday, August 20 from 10-3pm. KidFest provides low cost family entertainment for the community and surrounding area, with free community booths, food vendors, all day stage entertainment and low-cost field activities. We could not provide this fun-filled family event without the help of volunteers.
We are in desperate need of volunteers to help with wristband sales, information tent & photo booth, managing field activity line-ups, set up & clean up. There are not many jobs to do but we cannot run the event without help. We are happy to have you assist us for any amount of time you are willing to give. Typical shifts are 1-2 hours.
If you are able to lend a hand or would like more information please contact us at info@kidfest.ca
