Why Volunteer With Us?

If you have a passion for our 43,000 flowering cherry trees and like meeting new people, our festival events offer a wide range of fun and exciting volunteer positions for you.

At the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, we pride ourselves on building community and diversity. Civic pride soars during the Festival month of April. We seek to build local pride and a sense of responsibility towards the individuals that make Vancouver and Canada such an inspiring place.

By volunteering with us you have a uniquely personal experience to reconnect with community in-person safely out of doors and connect with nature. You’ll help bring joy, hope, and beauty to festival goers from a variety of ethnic, professional, and personal backgrounds. You’ll learn first hand “there is no stranger under the cherry tree.

We also offer volunteer training and project opportunities that will give you lasting tools for accomplishing your own goals.

Looking to Get Involved?

We have been overwhelmed by the positive response to our call for volunteers for this year’s Festival, and the amount of enthusiasm our supporters have to get back to in-person events. We have wrapped this year’s Festival so any new applicants from this point will be among the first to be contacted for Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival 2023. Thank you for your support!

The Festival is specifically looking for Cherry Scouts for every Vancouver neighbourhood. Cherry Scouts photograph and report to the Festival on the progression of the blossom so everyone can enjoy the show!
