Volunteer Information

Volunteering with a taste of Italy!

Italian Festival Darwin on Saturday 11 May 2019
at Civic Park

Darwin Italian Festival

The Festival

With an exhilarating mixture of food, drinks, art, culture and wonderful entertainment, the festival celebrates all things Italian within our community. To bring this all together, the Italian Festival Association of Darwin has gathered local businesses, school groups, entertainers, and support from the volunteering community to create the true essence of Italy - right here in Darwin.


Come along and volunteer for part or all of this Festival. Meet new people, see a slice of our exciting Darwin Italian culture and support the community.  We are looking for help to support staff in the areas of food, bar, stage assistance, information booths, venue service and the volunteer marquee. These will be fun, simple jobs and you will be volunteering at a safe, friendly, well-organized event. All volunteers will be well-trained and inducted and be protected under our volunteer insurance system. Come on board!!

Volunteer kit

As a volunteer of the Darwin Italian Festival you will receive a volunteer's shirt, hat, unlimited water, all the support you need and,  of course, a fantastic Italian meal. There will be a dedicated rest area and also time to relax and enjoy the excitement of the event.
