Welcome to the Festivals and Events Volunteer Page

Ipswich Festivals coordinate a variety of annual events including SPARK Ipswich, Planes Trains and Autos, Galvanized and Christmas in Ipswich with a wide range of volunteering opportunities.

Being a volunteer with Ipswich Festivals is a highly rewarding experience.  The benefits of event volunteering include: Building social skills and personal confidence, career growth and learning new practical skills and giving back to the community. 

Ideal volunteer candidates will have:

  • Be able to provide exemplary customer service and support, assist visitors to the events with guidance, directions and information which will enhance their experience, and ensure the safety of patrons.
