We are looking for people like YOU! 

Last year over 200 volunteers helped make the Fanshawe Dragon Boat Festival the success that it is. Without the hard work and dedication of the volunteer team this event would not happen. Volunteers are needed in a variety of areas on site the day before and during the event.



  • Set-up (Friday, June 12) - Help prepare the site by assisting with landscaping, setting up tents, signage etc.
