Commonly asked questions from volunteers.

Why should I volunteer?

Although some of us out there like to think Baconfest is just about bacon… and in some ways it might be. But it’s so much more. It’s about bringing our community together, supporting one another, meeting friends, getting self-satisfaction from learning a new skill, oh and there’s perks like our regular prize draws.

I don’t have much time

That’s okay. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and it certainly wasn’t built by one person. Your contribution doesn’t need to be big; even a couple of hours between now and August would be fine. Every little bit helps

I can’t come to Kingaroy Baconfest, can I still sign up?

That’s totally okay! We need people both before and after the event, helping to get the event ready and packing down and sorting after. We would be grateful for anything you can to do help.

I’m not really sure where I fit, I’m not into crowds or festivals.

Excellent. That is great to hear! We need people like you. People who are happy in the background are the backbone of Baconfest, and without people like you… the festival wouldn’t go ahead. People helping in the background breaking off wristbands, doing the washing up, putting out signs, picking stuff up or putting labels on things.

I want to sign up, but I don’t know how to use a computer

That’s okay! You seem to have survived life quite fine up until now, and that doesn’t have to change for Kingaroy Baconfest. Simply get in touch with us, and we can send you out a form or grab your details over the phone. Oh, and no fear…We also have plenty of jobs going around that don’t involve technology!

I have kids and can’t get babysitting.

It’s okay. We get it! Thankfully as this is a family event, kids are welcome (to most things). We will have jobs for you that you can do from home, working around your busy schedules and where you can bring the kids along too. They might just make some new friends too.

Will it cost me anything to volunteer?

No, in fact, being a volunteer brings many perks. Every volunteer gets free entry into the festival, a t-shirt, a coffee voucher, a discount on pizzas over the Kingaroy BaconFest weekend, an invitation to the afterparty and, of course entry into multiple prize draws. Can we count on making new friends as a perk too?

I don’t live in Kingaroy, can I still volunteer?

Yes you can! If you are planning on coming to the festival, let us know early so you can secure some accommodation. There is lots available from camping right up to swanky rooms and B & B’s. There is also lots you can help with from a distance in the lead up. We have spaces in social media, planning, editing, designing, making, creating and you might even think of a job that we haven’t.

I have a disability and I’m not sure what job would suit me.

Here at Kingaroy BaconFest, we get an A on our report cards for acceptance! We understand that everyone is different and has strengths in different areas. Simply sign up, tell us what you enjoy doing, and we will then find a fit for you that works. There is something for everyone. We promise!
