VolunteerFest

The City of Leduc is proud to present VolunteerFest!

Our community, celebrating our volunteers.

This event is free to attend and will feature food, entertainment, volunteer opportunities and recognition of the outstanding citizens, volunteers, groups and businesses that have made a tremendous contribution to our community.
This event is designed to allow for the introduction and reconnection to volunteerism in Leduc and to bring the community together to not only celebrate, support and promote local Not-for-profits, but also acknowledge the amazing volunteers and outstanding citizens in our area! 

The City of Leduc values and appreciates the volunteers in our community, and we recognize the power that they bring when united to move our community forward. The Value of One. The Power of Many. Our hope is that this celebration will act as a catalyst for future volunteerism amongst our youth.
