Gate Monitors

The Christmas Bureau of Edmonton has an opportunity to help out our friends at Events Edmonton during their 2024 Taste of Edmonton event. If you are someone who likes meetings and talking with people, can stand for a four-hour shift, and doesn’t mind monitoring a crowd and reporting any incidents to security, this volunteer activity is for you.


Dates: July 18 -28 | Location: Sir Winston Churchill Square, Downtown Edmonton

  • There are 5 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 Monitors will have access to an open tent at each gate.
  • You will receive food tickets for each shift worked.
