The Wharf Rat Rally has the best volunteers EVER!
Volunteers are the key to our annual successes and we are currently recruiting new faces for 2018 and looking forward to seeing many friends in shifts again this year.
Offer your time as a Front-line Volunteer, a Shift Supervisor or a Team Leader in one of the following areas:
Traffic (motorcycle parking guide)
We will be actively recruiting volunteers in the spring for our 2019 Wharf Rat Rally ... our 15th Annual!
At that time, you'll be able to go online to see the available shifts. Or you can stop by Wharf Rat Rally Headquarters once we're open for the summer to give us your name, phone number and email address and someone will be in contact with you shortly afterward.
NOTE: If you volunteered in 2018, you will be contacted by your Team Leader or a Volunteer Coordinator. If you would like to switch areas of volunteering, please let whoever contacts you know where you'd like to volunteer in 2019, and your contact info will be passed along to the Team Leader for that new area.
What a blessing to have such a dedicated, skilled and willing volunteer force! Thank you each and every one!
The Wharf Rat Rally is the largest outdoor annual event west of the Halifax / Hwy 102 line and is considered one of Nova Scotia’s esteemed signature events.
With over 8,000 motorcycles and twenty thousand people over the five days leading up to Labour Day, the Rally couldn’t be possible without the help of volunteers.
Every year our team of volunteers grows - from 51 volunteers in 2011 to over 200 in 2018 (and a high of 303 in 2015). Each and every volunteer is integral in the success of the Wharf Rat Rally, whether directing traffic, selling merchandise, taking registrations or running time trials. Thank you, all!
The Wharf Rat Rally provides shuttle service to our volunteers from parking areas or residences within Digby to your volunteer location. Please call 902.245.4263 for the shuttle dispatch. This service would not be possible without the support of area car dealers and Enterprise Rent-a-Car who provide the vehicles, and registration revenues which provides the gas. Please thank our sponsors!
