Event Follow Up

Thank you Events Edmonton for partnering with us for a second year for the Taste of Edmonton!

Together, we raised enough funds to feed 873 seniors a festive meal at Christmastime! Literally hundreds of Edmonton volunteers pitched in and helped out over 10 days for this amazing fundraising effort! Nearly 50% of those volunteers are new to our volunteer roster, and joined our "seasoned" volunteers to make this happen- thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Our friends at Events Edmonton have asked the Christmas Bureau to partner together again this year for the Taste of Edmonton.  We need your help to help raise funds and awareness through this exciting partnership and fundraising opportunity.  The Christmas Bureau will receive an honorarium for each volunteer hour worked between July 18 and 28


This is the perfect opportunity for our community and corporate partners for team-building and group volunteering.

Volunteer Roles:

There are two different roles to be filled: survey taker and gate monitors.  The survey takers will be walking around the festival grounds with an electronic tablet to capture feedback from the patrons on their overall thoughts on the festival (food/venue/etc.).  The gate monitors will be stationary and will monitor entrants with a counting device, restrict alcohol from leaving the site, and monitor crowd behaviour and report any concerns immediately to Events Edmonton Management/Paladin Security.


Volunteers will receive the following:

  • Free parking at MacEwan University
  • Free shuttle service to festival grounds from MacEwan University
  • Invitation to attend the volunteer appreciation BBQ on July 21st
  • Complimentary snacks, juice and water cooler (please bring your own reusable cup)
  • Volunteer t-shirt and hat
  • One complimentary Taste of Edmonton ticket per volunteer hour
  • Promo code to receive $10 discount on tickets (online purchase only)
