We are currently looking for volunteers to help turn our park into a magical wonderland of light on August 24th, 2019. There are multiple volunteer positions available and we encourage you to involve your family and friends. We are always looking for new and returning volunteers as this event could not go on without your dedication and hard work.

Information Assistant

Are you an outgoing person looking to assist people with accurate information? Why don’t you consider becoming an information assistant for the Lumiere Festival and guide people to their proper destination.

Lantern Assistant

Do you have an active imagination? Are you crafty? Each year the Lumiere festival fills Stanley Park with hundreds of home made lanterns. Would you like to be a part of the building or lantern care team? If yes, this is the volunteer category for you.
