Volunteers Needed

Have a Great Time Volunteering at the Canadian Festival of Chili and BBQ

Volunteers are a very important part of The Canadian Festival of Chili and BBQ, our event could not exist without your help!

The Festival has approximately 20 volunteer shifts available per day that are about 3 hours long. Your involvement will help us raise money for The BC Professional Firefighters’ Burn Fund to help survivors of burns here in BC.

Places that volunteers are needed are:

  • Assisting firefighter volunteers with welcoming visitors, handing out wristbands and festival brochures
  • Assisting the producers
  • Helping the teams that are competing
  • Assisting teams with their public sampling after each turn in for judging
  • Assisting in the Judging Area

The atmosphere of BBQ competition, as well as the enthusiasm and curiosity of the public that attend make this event a great volunteer experience. Oh… and there is the incredible food you get to sample! The BBQ festival is completely volunteer-run, no one receives any financial compensation. Our Festival is all about raising money for charity and promoting family fun while enjoying great food outdoors. If you have never taken in a real Southern Chili and BBQ competition before you will be amazed. Come be part of our incredible team. We guarantee you will have a great time!
