VolFest 2020


Volunteering is at the heart of so many organisations and causes in our community.

This is your chance to get involved and DO SOMETHING GREAT.

The definition of a grass roots event, VolFest is a celebration of giving back, learning new skills and putting your own skills to use to make a true difference in our special community. We have sites available for 100 organisations which will be showcasing their services at the event, giving people the opportunity to learn more and become part of the volunteering movement in Tauranga.

If not you, who? If not now, when?

Those are the two questions we’ll be hoping this event poses to everyone who comes along. An event where community connections, spirit and togetherness will be at the centre of the festival, the celebratory atmosphere will include food trucks galore, music and entertainment on stage, activated areas that provides fun for the whole family.

Please join us in making the inaugural VolFest on Saturday, 4th April 2020 a special way of connecting and enhancing our vibrant community.

If you are an organisation and wish to take part in this event by way of performing, having a stall, etc, please click here to register or visit or CONTACT US for more information.

If you are a volunteer, or want to volunteer, attend the festival and find out about the work that some of our amazing organisations do in our community, follow us on social media or signup to our database.

We are looking forward to seeing you there.
