**There are various tasks available for teardown. If you have any physical limitations, are uncomfortable with particular equipment, or with a particular task, please notify the Site Coordinator at the beginning of your teardown shift so they may assign you appropriately!
Take Over the Park Day
If you would like to help out with Take Over the Park Day (the day the Festival takes over Gallagher Park) please sign up via MyVolunteerPage.com.

All new volunteers, and 50% of the festival’s returning volunteers, are required to complete a teardown shift (a 3-4 hour shift). In general though, if you have time after the festival to help with teardown, please do so. If you are unavailable to work a teardown shift, please contact the Volunteer Office to make alternate arrangements.
*Note: talk to your coordinator about teardown. some crews make arrangements to work together as a group, or have special teardown commitments
Make sure you wear closed toe footwear and comfortable work clothing. Practice sun safety and wear sunscreen and a hat! Please bring a water bottle as they are not provided on site. Keep in mind that there is no secure storage on site, so we suggest leaving valuables in your vehicle or at home.
Parking is available in the Cloverdale neighbourhood pre/post Festival. Allocated festival parking is available along 96 Ave, but you can also park in the neighbourhood at least a block away from site leaving a car length in front and behind you. There is no parking available in the Muttart Conservatory lot, and vehicles may be ticketed.
Once you arrive at the Ski Club, please check in at the Production Office, located in the trailers next to Stage 5. From there, they will direct you to a teardown coordinator.
If you need to change your shift, please head to the Schedule tab in your MyVolunteerPage.com account and cancel your original shift. You can sign up for a new shift in the Opportunities section. Please note that only available time slots will appear for you to sign up.
