Become a Volunteer!

When you volunteer, you are giving something back to the community, and you have the knowledge that you are helping make Port Colborne's festivals a success for thousands of residents and visitors each year.

As we close out 2017, the City has two remaining events that we need to fill with volunteers. Please review the opportunities below and give us a call if you can help us out.
