Volunteer

Tromsø VegFest – Nord-Norges Vegetarfestival depends on volunteers and we need many to make it as awesome as it can be!

There are loads of possible tasks, both at the event and beforehand. To name a few: helping at bake sales or information stalls before the festival, baking vegan cake, handing out leaflets before the event, setting up and taking down on the day of the event, selling lottery tickets during the festival, check tickets at the entrance, photography/videography, helping at the kid’s corner and more! Read more about the different tasks below! Our shifts are short (around 3,5 hours), so you have the possibility to both volunteer & enjoy the festival as a guest.

As a volunteer you will also:

  • Make a load of new friends and be part of an awesome community
  • Make a big difference and earn our eternal gratefulness
  • Learn new skills
  • Free snacks the day of the event
  • Get free entrance to the festival

You’re updating people out there on social media on the day of the event – inviting everyone at home to come and join or show them what a great festival they missed!
