  • Costume design/construction
  • Scenic Art
  • Odd jobs ( usually involving glitter and/or feathers)
  • Logistics

Event Day Volunteers

If you’re looking for something a little less involved, our event-day volunteers is a great way to not only help us put these events on, but to have a great time and meet great people also.

You can volunteer for any number of our events including Harbour Party, Parade, Fair Day, Party and many of our festival events throughout the season. Have a look at our event day opportunities page for more information.

Support Teams

Supporting the events in their work are our support teams that provide support services for the organisation. These include looking after office administration, volunteers, membership, learning and development, recruitment, medical, event fundraising, just to name a few. Opportunities in these workings are advertised on MyMardiGras and also featured on our ongoing opportunities page.
