Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Ribfest 2024

The dates for 2024 are Friday, August 23rd to Sunday, August 25th, 2024.  Ribfest has been voted Guelph's best outdoor event and, with your support as a volunteer this year, we can make it even better. 
Many volunteers are members of the Rotary Club of Guelph Trillium or family members or friends.  Other Rotarians from Guelph's other service clubs also lend a hand. Community volunteers are very welcome and absolutely critical to our delivering a successful event to the community.  
We will also be looking for Community groups and Sports teams to volunteer for Table and Park Clean-Up shifts in exchange for a donation to their organization. Contact for more information on those opportunities.

Returning Ribfest volunteers should sign up here now!

New Volunteers, click here to create your user name and password to create your profile and sign up for shifts.

Click the "Fill in Application" link and it will take you to a screen with two log-in options.  Follow the directions for new volunteers on the left side of the screen.

Some volunteer positions require a police check for anyone 18 years and older. Anyone under the age of 18 does not require a police check but must provide a completed Parent/Guardian Permission Form before the event.
Please download our Parent/Guardian Permission Form. Once completed and signed by a parent or guardian, email us the scanned form or advise that you are sending the form by Canada Post mail. We must have the completed form before your first shift.

Any volunteers working in the beer area are required to be Smart Serve Certified.
NOTE:  There are new Provincial requirements to apply for and recertify your Smart Serve Qualifications.  Use the link above to comply with the new requirements.  All other qualifications are listed with each volunteer opportunity.

ALL VOLUNTEERS, Rotarians, as well as family members and community volunteers, will be provided with orientation material for review before your first shift.
