Volunteer Opportunities

Are you at least 16-years-old? Are you someone who just loves Halloween, or at least making people scream in fear? Whatever your reason, we welcome you to join our HHV cast and crew!

We’re looking for fun, energetic people to show us their most fear-provoking faces, which may include zombies, ghosts, or other spooky characters.  To find out more, join us for the HHV Volunteer Casting Session at 6 pm on September 20 at Cumberland Heritage Village Museum. Mark it in your calendar!

If acting isn’t your strong suit, we’re in need of volunteers at least 14-years-old with artistic flare, too! 

Is makeup your forte? Come 'make up' our team on event nights! We’re also looking for those who know some tricks of the construction trade to help build on-site sets, as well as volunteers to create props, assist with nightly set up, and provide hospitality services such as parking attendants, greeting visitors, and taking surveys! 

If you're a NEW volunteer and would like more information about joining the Haunted Historic Village cast and crew, please contact us or call 613-580-2424, ext. 17303.

All returning volunteers, please fill out the Haunted Historic Village Volunteer Intake Form, and should you have any questions please contact Daniele Hamonic.
