The 2024 Events Season is coming up quickly (or has already started for some!) and we would like to invite you to VOLUNTEER GODERICH, a volunteer trade show for Events and Organizations in Goderich. This year, we will be hosting VOLUNTEER GODERICH on Saturday, May 11 between 11 am and 3 pm at Memorial Arena in Goderich.

Last year, this event helped connect organizations and events with the volunteers they needed, and volunteers with new opportunities to get involved. This is the second annual event of its kind, and we hope to attract folks from all over to find their next volunteer opportunity.

After last year’s event we asked participants to complete a survey and we have listened your feedback! In response to our participant feedback survey, this year, we are making the day shorter, and we will welcome food trucks to help provide folks with a snack or meal while they find their volunteer fit.

We are also adapting our stage-time to a slide show of event and organization photos and facts throughout the day. This will give folks a visual of all the great opportunities available to them!

Tourism Goderich is looking to invite Goderich-based organizations and events to attend and if you are part of an organization or event that operates out of the Municipality of Goderich, this is a FREE event for you!

REGISTRATION: We have a number of events and organizations interested, so please contact us as soon as possible to confirm your table reservation. Registration is limited to 40 participating groups.


SET-UP: Each participating group will be assigned a table and corresponding number. It will be up to your group to bring your own promotional materials – be that paper, décor, etc. You are free to bring any materials that you feel will best give folks an idea as to what you do. Get interactive. Bring activities. Have brochures and/or takeaways. As long as you can contain your set-up to the area around your table, you can get as creative as you like! Hydro access will be limited for this event, so we ask that you provide your own sources of power (gas-powered generators excluded). Should your set-up hinge on power, a SINGLE 15-amp outlet will be accommodated for the first 15 vendors to request it. Please note, folks must bring their own extension cords.
