Moving/setting up tables, chairs, cables and signage in the hall. Helping exhibitors to find their table. We have little time to set up everything, so your work is crucial! And hey, be one of the first people seeing all of the great things Tromsø VegFest has to offer 🙂 Side note: Volunteering for this task enables you also to enjoy the ENTIRE festival!

Want to make people enter the festival with a smile? You’re the first person visitors meet and you check tickets, sell tickets and hand out event guides. Join this crew if you want to give people a great festival start!

As a volunteer at the Grønn Framtid booth you inform people about the organisation behind Tromsø VegFest – Nord-Norges Vegetarfestival: Grønn Framtid! You inform about campaigns, give information on vegan food, sell books and look for new members who will support Grønn Framtids work. You’ll receive training before 🙂 Curious to know more now about Grønn Framtid and our mission to reduce animal products by 50 % by 2040? Check out www.gronn-framtid.no!

You are the one who jumps in if someone is sick, if we realise that we need more people somewhere or who helps solving unforeseen problems. Bonus: You might get to see/do lots of different cool things!

You are caring for the festivals smallest visitors by drawing with them, playing or other activities – and making them smile! Bonus: Want to be the person/one of the persons planning the childrens corner as well? You already have suggestions on what the kid’s corner should look like/what the activities should be? Go ahead and write to tromso(at)vegfest.no

You are the person keeping the festival and it’s message alive: Even when the festival is over! As a photographer you will be all over the festival taking photos of exhibitors, visitors, speakers, cooking classes and more! Big plus if you have experience with taking good photos and if you have the possibility to take photos during the whole day – with lots of breaks of course! It’s a requirement that you bring your own camera.

You’re a star, because you make the festival look nice, tidy and clean! We need you! And of course our shining star will see a lot of the festival as you’re roaming around 🙂

You are the one making sure that speakers and cooking demo assistants have everything they need and that there are no problems during the talks and cooking demos – and of course you get to see a lot of what’s going on on stage. For this position you need to be able to speak both Norwegian and English.

At the welcome table you help visitors finding their way at the festival location, answer questions as well as selling awesome cake and raffle tickets. You are representing Tromsø VegFest even more than other places! 🙂

You know, somehow we need to get all that equipment to the location. That's where you jump in! You'll transport boxes, maybe listen to some good music while driving and be the our transportation hero!

Let us know if you can help with your own car, or if you need us to fix a car for you. Note: Valid driving licence for Norway is obviously a requirement :) And: Volunteering for this task enables you also to enjoy the ENTIRE festival!

Hand out flyers about Tromsø VegFest in the city center to let even more people know about our delicious festival! You’ll be away from the festival venue, but therefore your shift is one of the shortest – so plenty of time to enjoy the festival!

You’re updating people out there on social media on the day of the event – inviting everyone at home to come and join or show them what a great festival they missed! This role requires that we get to know you better before the festival – because you’re not only speaking to more than a thousand festival attendees, but also thousands of people out there!

You are the person keeping the festival and it’s message alive: Even when the festival is over! As a videographer you will be all over the festival taking videos of exhibitors, visitors, speakers, cooking classes and more! Big plus if you have experience with recording videos. It’s a requirement that you bring your own camera for this position.
