Volunteer

Our volunteers are the backbone of our parade! Without you, we wouldn’t be able to make the event as best as possible! Volunteers can do anything from being Marshals, guiding parade goers along the right routes or even Food Leaders, handing out Veg food and flyers to our attendees!

If you’re passionate about the Toronto Veggie Parade and would love to volunteer for this year’s event, register here! For more information, check out the descriptions of each volunteer position below!

PRE-PARADE

Flyering/Postering

We need to get the word out about the Veggie Parade to surrounding communities, and the rest of Toronto! Sign up for this role and help drop off flyers and posters in stores surrounding the parade route, and in Vegan/Vegetarian/Eco friendly businesses around the city that may be interested in the parade, bike shops, community centres etc.
Time Commitment: 1-2 hours a week (flexible timing – you can do this anytime between the Monday and Sunday leading up to the parade)

Social Media Ambassadors

Are you social media savvy? We really want to get the word out to new communities about our parade and we know a great way to do that is through social media. All we’re asking is for you to share our awesome event with your own personal communities – your friends, families, professional and personal groups – whatever you’re comfortable with!
Time Commitment: No more than a few minutes per day, a few days a week
