Our Volunteers

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

Non profit volunteer organizations may apply to be 'Goodwill Gate Ambassadors' for the Quality Foods Sand Sculpting Competition & Exhibition. Their job is to staff the gates and greet visitors during the Competition weekend and 5-week Exhibition. Each volunteer group commits to between 4 and 8, 3 to 4 hour shifts throughout the Festival. This is a large commitment of time and resources and the Parksville Beach Festival Society 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 2019, $68,818.75 was shared among 25 volunteer groups, who in turn used this money for their various community projects.
