Midwinter Carnival Night Volunteer


Dunedin Midwinter Carnival Trust






Dunedin, Mosgiel

The Dunedin Midwinter Carnival is produced by Dunedin Midwinter Celebrations, a registered charitable trust based in Dunedin. We believe it is important to celebrate our distinct seasons in a way that is appropriate to our local environment.

We have a large number of volunteer roles available for people to help on the night of the Midwinter Carnival.

The roles we will need to follow are as follows:

  • Lantern workshop assistants
  • Art team assistants
  • Bouncy castle assistants
  • Brazier keepers
  • Donation collectors
  • Crowd management/safety
  • Information tent
  • Procession guides
  • Ticketing team
  • Night market crew
  • Crowd counters
  • Mulled wine
  • Set up
  • Pack down
  • Crowd safety

We are unable to guarantee which role you will be given but we will endeavour to give you a role that suits your skills and experience.


These roles are diverse and we have something to suit everyone who is keen to be involved in Dunedin's premiere winter event for the public.

Time commitment

Between 2 and 6 hours on the evening. Volunteers will also need to attend an induction evening and a rehearsal night prior to the event.

We hope that everyone who volunteers will be able to help out on both nights. Please get in touch and we will send you more detailed information about each role.
