Join our Vol Team! 

Join Us at the 5th Annual Kanata Ribfest May 24-26 at our NEW location at Community Hub, 400 March Road. Ribfest volunteers have the opportunity to learn about what it takes to keep 1000s of Rib-eaters happy while networking with local businesses and other community volunteers. Need volunteer hours to graduate, then this is the place to be.  You are also in the perfect place to enjoy the continuous entertainment on the big stage and to sample those mouth-watering ribs!


Ribfest volunteers must be 14 year of age or older. For secondary school students, Ribfest volunteer hours are eligible to be counted towards your 40 hours of community service. Volunteers are needed to fill the following positions:


  • Ribfest greeters

  • Cleaning and maintenance Ambassadors 

  • Monitors for vendor entrances and emergency exits

  • Monitors for recycling/composting stations


Ribfest greeters provide a warm welcome to all inbound Ribfest fans as well as answer any questions they might have. A short training session is held prior to each volunteer shift.


Cleaning and maintenance assistants help keep the entire Ribfest venue sparkling clean. Specific duties include clearing, wiping down tables and chairs, maintaining cleanliness at water stations and litter control.


Entrance and exit monitors assist in directing all Ribfest patrons to the main entrance and exit. Monitors for the recycling/composting stations assist Ribfest patrons with depositing their waste and garbage in the correct bins.


Volunteer shifts are a minimum of four hours and a maximum of up to eight hours in duration. Regular breaks are scheduled and water is provided.


If you’re enthusiastic, energetic, enjoy working with the public and want to make this year's Ribfest the best ever, please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator!
