Several festivals are seeking volunteers this summer


This year, we can finally organize festivals, concerts and fun events without restrictions. To succeed the events depends on help from volunteers. Perhaps something for you?

Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity for making friends, learning something new and getting to know the Stavanger-region.  Both Gladmat Food Festival, ONS and Startup Weekend is looking for volunteers.

Gladmat Food Festival

The festival area is open from 11:00 to 18:00 during the festival days, but some concept areas keep open for longer, to 22:00. These days, there will be two work shifts in the concept areas, which cover the opening time. The length of the shifts varies a bit between the concept areas, but they all last for 4 to 5,5 hours, between 11:00 and 22:30.


The volunteers will mainly work on the following tasks:

Techstars Startup Weekend
Want to meet amazing people in the city, learn awesome startup methodologies and make a massive positive impact in your community while having fun on the way?

Why Entrepreneurship is Critical for People and Planet
Entrepreneurs imagine the future we live in. They dream about possibilities and opportunities, and build the world from their aspirations. Is it sustainable living, respect for human dignity and a voice, clean water and sanitation for all? To alleviate poverty or educate? Entrepreneurs are vital not only because of the economic value and jobs they create, but more importantly, as they are critical in creating the world around us - the world we want to live in and what we want to leave for future generations.

Curious about becoming an Entrepreneur?
At Startup Weekend Stavanger, we are an all-volunteer committee, passionate about innovation and entrepreneurship! And we are passionate that innovation has a positive impact on people and the planet.

If you’re curious about what it means to be an entrepreneur and how to become one, come join us on 23-25 September 2022 at Innovation Dock!

The Startup Weekend is an exciting and immersive experience into the world of startups. Over an action-packed three days, you’ll meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders and sponsors to show you how to get more done faster - and, maybe even start that business.
