We need Volunteers

We are not able to put on these events without a strong group of volunteers to assist with tasks such as beer garden supervision, craft zone leader, food preparation, festival set up and festival tear down.

If you are able to commit a couple hours of your time, please check out our available spots and sign up for a shift

Sponsors and Partners

A big thanks to our sponsors and partners - we couldn't do it without them. If you're interested in sponsorship, contact Susan at programs@southwoodconnects.ca.
