Volunteers

Join our crew of volunteers and be part of this fantastic community event!

We need over 100 volunteers for the festival.

From crowd control to face painting, staging Te Ramaroa, and keeping it free and safe takes a few hours' mahi from people like you – our wonderful volunteers.

In 2021, Te Ramaroa will run over five nights from 9 - 13 July, open to the public from 5.30 – 9.30pm each evening.

It’s a great event to be part of! 
Sure, you need to rug up, but your reward is in the wonderful comments from our audience…and the shining eyes of little kids in their pyjamas who are laying down lifetime memories of the very special community they grew up in.

Spreading the load

To spread the load we require over 100 volunteers for the event, each ideally committing to 2 or 3 shifts over the five nights. Each shift will be just 2.5 hours as we will rotate helpers over a split shift schedule.

Please fill in the volunteer information and we’ll be back to you prior to the event with details of this year’s registration and briefing sessions. 

Thank you for helping us make the magic happen this winter!
