Volunteer Registration Now Open for the 2018 Pride Winnipeg Festival

(Winnipeg, MB; April 5, 2018) – Come out and volunteer this summer! – Volunteer registration is now open for the 2018 Pride Winnipeg Festival, set to take place on May 25th – June 3rd.

“Manitoba has a strong volunteer spirit and as an organization that is ran entirely of volunteers, we understand and appreciate the value of people donating their time for a worthy cause such as the Pride Winnipeg Festival,” said Jonathan Niemczak, President of the Pride Winnipeg Festival.

Each year, the Pride Winnipeg Festival relies upon hundreds of volunteers in order to deliver the annual festival. For 2018, there are a variety of volunteer roles for the Pride Winnipeg Festival including being a part of the Green Team, marshalling the parade or assisting with event logistics.

“This is a great opportunity to be a part of a large-scale city-wide event, and to build skills and gain experience in areas of leadership, customer service, and team work,” said Niemczak. Interested individuals are encouraged to sign up at www.pridewinnipeg.com/volunteer.

The Pride Winnipeg Festival is one of the largest annual celebrations of gender, sexual, and relationship diverse culture in Canada. It began as a one-day event in 1987 and has grown to be a 10-day annual festival of music, dance, art and more, all centered around the annual Pride Parade which takes place in the heart of downtown Winnipeg. The Pride Winnipeg Festival organization is fully operated by volunteers.
