Volunteer

The Scandinavian Heritage Society of Edmonton invites you to celebrate your heritage by having some fun and volunteering at the Servus Heritage Festival. To locate our pavilion, click on the Festival Map button. (right hand side menu) We need you!

We need volunteers in both the food tent and cultural tent. In recognition of their much needed assistance, volunteers receive food tickets for use in our pavillion.

There are two shifts:

  • 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
  • 3:30 pm to 9:00 pm closing

Volunteers are asked to arrive 30 minutes early to can sign in, be introduced to other volunteers, and pick up their food tickets.
