Volunteer @ Cairns Children's Festival

Welcome to the 2019 Cairns Children’s Festival.

Now in its sixth year, the Cairns Children's Festival will be celebrated over two days, 18-19 May 2019, across the Tanks Arts Centre, the Cairns Botanic Gardens and for the first time the new Cairns Performing Arts Centre.

The Cairns Children's Festival is an action packed weekend of creativity, adventure and innovation for children aged 12 and under. With a range of free and ticketed events there is something for everyone!

The festival wouldn’t be possible without the wonderful support from our volunteers. The Cairns Children’s Festival is seeking volunteers to

  • Assist with general set up
  • Assist in the delivery of workshops, activities and programs
  • Assist with customer service, providing information to the public
  • Direct members of the public at events

Volunteering is a great way to gain new experiences, meet new people and have a lot of fun.
