We are looking for Canadians to take shifts hosting the Canada Booth during the three days of the festival on October 26-28 . Each volunteer will be given a pass that grants them free access to everything the festival has to offer before or after their shift on the day they are volunteering.
You will find details and instructions on how to register for a shift HERE.

We are looking for an enthusiastic Canadian who is interested in coordinating CNNC events throughout the year, whether it’s Third Thursday Networking, Canada Day or other networking gatherings.
The CNNC event coordinator will contributed event ideas, contact venues, set up registration or ticket sales using Eventbrite, recruit hosts for events, write up promo blurbs for the CNNC website and social media, and help with survey or membership emails regarding these events as well as attend said events whenever their schedule permits. The event coordinator is considered a full member of the CNNC Leadership Team and will work closely with the president and social media coordinator.
The best candidate will work well both independently and as part of team, will contribute to discussions and respond quickly to emails, and will attend the rare CNNC meetings. They will also have sufficient volunteer time to devote to the various tasks required for the coordination of CNNC events (time varies based on number or size of events at any given time).
Interested Canadians should send the CNNC Leadership Team an email introducing themselves and describing the skills and interests they possess to successfully coordinate CNNC events.
We’re getting ready to design the Canada Booth for the 2018 Raleigh International Festival and, while digging through some old documents, the booth coordinator found this little gem (well, she isan archaeologist!). Year 2010 was when Canada joined the many cultural groups who participate in the festival to offer the people of North Carolina a little taste of the world.
Would you like to join Team Canada and host the Canada Booth in 2018? Simply send us an email at canadabooth.cnnc (a) gmail.com and we will let you know when we start scheduling booth volunteers!

The Canada Booth would not have been possible without our wonderful volunteers (Alara, Caitlyn, Carol, Caroline, Craig, Denise, Dominique, Donna, Ethan, Frank, Gary, Helen, Ian, Jane, Joe, Karissa, Martin, Nedelka, Paul, Susana and Tera) and the generous support of the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta. Many, many thanks to everyone!

Another wonderful day at the Canada Booth and the last of this year’s International Festival. The combination of the colourful superheroes and the contemplative black and white didactics about the real, human heroes was a success. We got great compliments about the booth all weekend: eye-catching, educational, fun, well-designed with easy to read panels, and–most important–hosted by knowledgeable and friendly volunteers.
Here are a few photos of today’s action at the Booth.
Thank you to our superb volunteers who hosted today: Carol, Caroline, Helen, Frank, Ethan, Paul, and Gary.
Hoards of children descended upon the Canada Booth (a tad earlier than anticipated) on this first day of the 2017 Raleigh International Festival. We tricked young and old by switching the names of the superheroes featured in the booth… but many have thus discovered the amazing Nelvana of the Northern Lights and super cool Captain Canuck.
Canada 150 flags, pins, tattoos as well as maple candy and colouring sheets were distributed to the great delight of the masses. See our wonderful volunteers in action!
Many thanks to volunteers Shirley, Tera, Denise, Craig, Dominique, Gary, Paul and Caroline for hosting the Canada Booth today!
The 2017 Canada Booth came out of a bunch of bags and boxes in record time! We must be getting good at this… 30 minutes to set up the black curtain that’s been known to take much, much longer to hang. Canadian heroes and superheroes appeared on the walls and incredibly by 2:30pm we were done. Ahead by a century, it seemed.
Here are some fun pics of the installation. Thank you to Gary, Denise and Caroline for setting up and many thanks to the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta for generously supporting this cultural endeavour.
