The Christmas Bureau has an opportunity to help out our friends at Events Edmonton during their 2021 Taste of Edmonton event.

Taste of Edmonton 2021 is from July 22 to August 1. This year’s event is located at Churchill Square in downtown Edmonton.

If you are someone like meetings and talking with people, can stand for a four hour shift, and don’t mind monitoring a crowd and reporting any incidents to security, this volunteer activity is for you.

PLEASE NOTE:  All AHS Health and Safety Protocols are in effect up to and including masking, sanitizing, 2m distancing, and reduced numbers of attendees. Health questionnaire will be required to be completed before each shift.

PLEASE NOTE:  This is an outdoor venue and the event goes rain or shine. Please keep this in mind when volunteering.


  • There are 8 gates on site and you will be assigned the gate upon arrival for your shift.
  • You will be working in pairs and there will be a Christmas Bureau Team Lead on site to assist.
  • You will receive a counter clicker to keep track of people exiting and/or entering the site.
  • There will be security at each gate to deal with any issues. CBE volunteers will refer all issues to Security or Site Management.
  • This is an outdoor position and we go rain or shine unless called off by Event Management.
  • The Gate Counter Volunteers will have access to an open tent at each gate.
  • You will receive 4 food tickets for each shift worked.
