We are looking for volunteers to provide general customer service during the different activations taking place each day in the Agricentre East and West Pavilions. We will need volunteers to help oversee a mechanical bull area, activities like moving hay, riding toy tractors, etc., as well as the big dirt ring activities.
Some of these positions will be great for youth under 18 years of age, while others will be recommended for adults. This area will also involve walking on concrete floors.
Because this space will be quite large, we could also use assistance setting up the AGventure pavilions, before and after Westerner Days. This is a great way to see the behind-the-scenes action!

Do you like meeting new people? This position will be key to information sharing throughout the pavilions as our guests maneuver through the different entertainment options. We may also ask you to provide support to other volunteer positions when volunteers go on breaks or need assistance. This includes the KIDventure Pavilion, AGventure Pavilion, the Dog Show, the 19th Street market and more! Involvement with a great variety of spaces are included with this position.

Please note, some walking on concrete may be required, but primarily this will be a booth position.
