Volunteers are the backbone of Porkapalooza

We can’t do it without you!

The Porkapalooza BBQ Festival Society’s mission is to create a family-focused festival that celebrates and showcases the culture and culinary art of BBQ in the city of Edmonton. It is only with the help of volunteers like you that we are able to produce the best BBQ Festival experience in Alberta.

Whether you are a returning volunteer or new to Porkapalooza, we’d be happy to have you join our team! It is with continued support by our volunteers that we are able to bring this locally-grown food festival to the city of Edmonton and at the same time, help those in need.
