We have shifts from 5 – 9 p.m. each festival night.

Positions Available

Crowd Counters

Our data-collecting team makes a HUGE impact. This team roves the festival or are stationed at specific locations to count attendees throughout the evening. This is a great role for our introverted friends!

Guest Experience

Our guest experience team interacts with attendees on-site at each location by providing general festival and wayfinding information, as well as answering questions. Definitely a great opportunity for more social folks.

About Lumiere

Established in 2014 as a non-profit society, the Lumière Festival Vancouver Society was created to redefine winter as a season of inspiration and coming together through light, art, music, and dance. Now in its 10th year, it is Lumière’s hope to create enriching arts and cultural experiences within public space that foster important community connections and engage diverse audiences.
