Be part of the energy of HighLight – volunteer and join the team

Help us bring NZ’s Best Community Event to life. At the heart of all the fun, gain experience at a large scale event, support your community and meet some wonderful people. Our volunteers help event goers have a great experience and make lasting positive memories.

Our volunteers help out in many ways, they:

  • are a source of general event information
  • help with directions
  • manage crowds
  • oversee installations or activities
  • help performers
  • welcome visitors and hand out maps
  • are the eyes and ears of the organisers
  • help our Charity Partner to collect donations
  • monitor car parks
  • help maintain a safe and fun environment.

As a volunteer, you’ll receive:

  • a HighLight t-shirt, yours to keep
  • any attire and equipment required to carry out your duties (ie. hi-vis vest)
  • a light meal and snacks for during your shift
  • an exclusive invite to the post-HighLight event
  • the opportunity to be involved in Lower Hutt’s largest event, and gain experience at a large scale event
  • the fun feel good factor of helping our community have enjoyable and memorable experiences.
