The Penticton Peach Festival is encouraging individuals to embrace the spirit of giving back to the community and become a volunteer for Penticton’s signature event.
“Behind this amazing summer tradition in Penticton are the unsung heroes – the selfless volunteers – whose dedication and hard work bring the festival to life,” said Subrina Monteith, Peach Festival Director.
Volunteers are welcome from all backgrounds, ages and skill levels. They can be seasoned pros or first-time volunteers. Monteith noted that volunteers are desperately needed to watch barricades, keep the park clean and assist with the Peters Bros Construction grand parade (Saturday, Aug. 12). A couple of volunteers are also needed to assist with the RPR Heating PeachDuro.
“By volunteering you are playing an important role in ensuring the festival continues to bring smiles to the faces of attendees and creates cherished memories for families. Whether you’re a people person, a behind-the-scenes type or someone who loves to spread joy, you’ll find the perfect role,” said Monteith.
Volunteers can work shifts into their day as they see fit, as people are needed for all five days (Aug. 9-13). For volunteering you receive a t-shirt, an invite to the appreciation party after the festival and make a positive impact on the community.
