Volunteer Opportunities

Be part of the very first Cairns Italian Festival.

Nonna Needs You!

Are you Italian or do you want to be? (of course you do!) Do you love events and being involved in your local community? Want to meet like-minded people and make new friends? Then apply now as a volunteer at the very first Cairns Italian Festival!

The Cairns Italian Festival will run from the 28 July 2022 – 6 August 2022. Volunteer support in the lead-up to the event as well as during the week-long festival is essential in making it a success.

We are seeking volunteers for coordinator roles within our committee, smaller roles in the lead up to the festival, as well as volunteers for the week of the festival. Commitment is flexible, so you can work around your existing schedule!

Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills through new experiences, meet new people and join a group of like-minded individuals who want to make this the best Cairns Italian Festival.

  • 2 passes to the Festival day
  • A Cairns Italian Festival T-Shirt
  • A complimentary meal & drink at the Festival

As well as the opportunity to:

  • Become closer to the local Italian community
  • Make new friends and meet like-minded people
  • Have the opportunity to give back to the community
