I’m happy to say that I am back for another year to help organize FernFest, and this year I am coordinating all our wonderful FernFest volunteers. It was amazing to meet so many of you last year, and I am thrilled to see what FernFest 2023 holds!

FernFest returns Friday, June 16 & Saturday, June 17. We can’t wait to bring the neighbourhood of Fernwood together in a meaningful way. Music from loads of local bands kicks off on Friday night and the festivities continue throughout Saturday morning into the evening. We are excited to continue our partnership with the Fernwood Community Association (FCA) and Vinyl Envy to host live music on the Little Fernwood Stage at 1923 Fernwood Road, across from the Fernwood Community Centre.

We have so many volunteer opportunities and would love to have you a part of our team. We would love support with festival set-up/tear down, the artisan market, Field of Dreams set-up, beverage gardens, beverage ticket sales, BBQ, hospitality, and our green team. We also have a couple new volunteer opportunities in helping set-up/take down sound equipment, and helping out our bike valets.There are also quite a few volunteer opportunities for pre-event as well as post-event if you want to contribute.

As a volunteer, you will receive a free FernFest shirt, free snacks and coffee, a ticket for the BBQ or beverage garden (to be used after your shift), get to hang out with and meet lots of great people, and support your community. We will also be hosting an Appreciation Party after FernFest on June 22 at Vinyl Envy with entertainment and refreshments as a thank you for everyone who donated their time to make FernFest a successful and fun event!

If you’re interested in getting involved, and want to meet like-minded individuals, this is the opportunity for you! Fill out our online FernFest Volunteer Application HERE. We are so excited for everyone to come together again to have yet another fantastic FernFest.
