Volunteers Needed!

Volunteers are key to making community events run smoothly and provide a warm local welcome for many people coming along from outside of our region.

If you're interested in volunteering, please send fill out our online "Volunteer Local" form. If you are having difficulty with the form please email Volunteer@wheelsatwanaka.co.nz

You don’t need to be into cars, truck or machines to get involved - we also need the assistance of awesome, helpful, energetic and friendly people over the two event days, as well set up and pack down. Simply fill out our online form.

When we need you

What you'll get

Each volunteer will receive a Wheels at Wanaka T-Shirt or cap and a 3-day pass to the show.  We’ll also provide you with shelter, food and drink whilst you’re onsite.  You'll get safety and how-to briefings and training where your role requires. Plus a Thank you Pizza evening on Sunday in the Tractor Shed.

We do ask our volunteers to be available for a minimum of 4 hours per day that they're available to volunteer. Ideally 2 to 3 days min.

To register an interest, let us know your skills, and how you can help - click on the link above to register as a Volunteer. We will then allocate you to a role and shifts for you to consider and approve or discuss further.

PLEASE NOTE: Qualified Machine Operators - will be by invite only by the Earthmoving Committee. And will be based initially on previous years involvement (and/or registered owner operator with own machine in the show)
