Our Volunteers

Where would a community be without the many volunteers who give back their expertise, talents, and time to benefit others?

Non profit volunteer organizations may apply to be 'Goodwill Ambassadors' for the Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition & Exhibition. Their job is to man the gates and greet visitors during the 5-week Beach Festival. Each volunteer group commits to 3-8 four-hour shifts throughout the 5 weeks. This is a large commitment of time and manpower and the Parksville Beach Festival could not do it without them!

In exchange for their volunteer time during the Exhibition, each organization shares in the proceeds from the donations collected at the gate. In some cases this is the organization's largest fundraiser for the year. In 2017, $62,150 in cash was distributed to the volunteer groups, who in turn used this money for their various community projects.
