The Grey Cup Festival Volunteer Program
Want to be part of the biggest festival of the year? The Grey Cup Festival is coming to Regina November 17-22, 2020 and we need your help!
We will begin accepting applications for volunteers in May, but encourage you to read our volunteer FAQ and continue to monitor the Grey Cup Festival website, Roughrider social media and the Grey Cup Festival social media.
Putting on Canada’s biggest party will take a team of about 1,500-2,000 volunteers. Volunteer opportunities and volunteer registration for the 2020 Grey Cup Festival will be announced in May. Festival volunteers will be in the heart of the action to welcome guests, show them a great time and make it the best event ever. Thank you for your interest.
Yes, you’ll be able to select the role(s) that interest you. Sign up will be first-come, first-served so we encourage volunteers to sign up and select their preferences early.
Volunteers must commit to a predetermined number of hours. Full volunteer responsibilities will be updated as we get closer to volunteer registration.
Yes, there will be a volunteer fee that helps cover the cost of uniforms, volunteer software, training and support for volunteers, and other administration expenses. The fee will be kept as low as possible and is expected to be around $75.
The fee supports a volunteer reward package that includes training, meals, volunteer appreciation opportunities, a unique behind-the-scenes event experience, and a uniform that distinguishes our volunteers and the important role they play in putting on the event. Volunteer uniforms will be high-quality clothing pieces that many volunteers continue to wear long after the event because they’re so proud to have been involved.
