The heart of the Festival are our volunteers and we rely on them to design beautifully decorated trees, wreaths, centrepieces & gingerbread houses for sale to the public. We have a dedicated volunteer crew who help with recruitment, staging, programming, logistics, construction, photography, set up/take down and delivery. As the presenting sponsor, we'll include your logo in communications with volunteers. Opportunities exist to promote your brand on volunteer items such as t-shirts, lanyards and ID badges.
