Closing Date 28/07/2019


The 42nd Galway International Arts Festival takes place from 15-28 July 2019.

As one of Ireland’s premiere Festivals of creative collisions, we depend hugely on our enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers to help transform the city for 14 exceptional days.

As a volunteer, you'll be part of a team who engage and welcome our national and international visitors in the Festival spirit and assist in providing the best experience possible for them - and we are dedicated to making it an exceptional experience for you, too! Volunteers receive official Festival t-shirts, free tickets to select shows, discounts on local businesses, an instant network of soon-to-be friends and much more. Come see what it's like to go behind the scenes of Extraordinary.

Once you are accepted as a GIAF volunteer, you have many roles to choose from - and you can take on as many as you want! We have hundreds of shows and other events that need volunteer assistance, which can all be signed up for individually using a convenient online system. Sign up to invigilate an art gallery, crowd steward at the Heineken Big Top or other music venue, greet and assist guests at a comedy or theatre show, keep the crowds safe at street spectacles, usher at one of our world-class discussion events - and there's so much more.
