  • You don’t need to be a vegetarian or a member to volunteer! 

  • Volunteering at Vegfest is a great way to help others while learning more yourself.

We know that vegetarian food choices have a big impact on people’s lives and the world they live in. Some people who attend Vegfest are already experienced vegetarians, but many, if not most, are beginners or just curious. You can make a real difference in their lives, by providing them with opportunities to try new foods.

 

VegGhana and Vegfest is run entirely by volunteers each year. We need hundreds of volunteers to make it happen.

We need help with various roles and shifts during the entire weekend.
