Be part of the festival fun

Festival Support Team
La Fiesta is filled with community generosity. Without the support of folk throughout Whanganui, this festival would have quite a different heart.

We are always on the look out for reliable people who can give some time to supporting our festival programme. Things we need extra hands with are:
- distributing festival posters and programmes
- front of house at various events
- cheerleaders for Frocks On Bikes [last Sunday in February]
- seeking sponsorship for various events
It is most helpful to us if volunteers believe in our kaupapa of supporting and celebrating women, are confident, and can pass the Police check process.

If you, or someone awesome you know, would like to offer some kind of practical assistance, we would love to hear from you.
Sponsor or Festival Partner
The Women's Network is a completely independent grass roots community organisation that is unique to Whanganui. We are funded by a range of charitable and philanthropic grants, fundraising initiatives, and support from the community.

We welcome support for La Fiesta! If you are interested in being a festival sponsor, we would love to chat about that. We are also keen to hear from businesses, community groups, or other fine folk who are keen to become a festival partner by actively supporting the festival and providing a range of activities.
La Fiesta provides wonderful opportunities to promote what you do, and has significant media exposure. We print 2,500 festival programmes, it's available online via various websites and social media, and is featured strongly in local print media too.

Contact us today to find out how you can become a festival sponsor or partner.
Volunteer at the Women's Network
In its more than 30 year history the Women's Network has had a strong basis of voluntary support. Whether its at operational or governance level, there's numerous ways in which you can support us.

Our day-to-day operation relies on the support of volunteers to assist our dynamic Manager. Volunteers assist with general reception, all important housekeeping, and providing amazing customer service.

We also appreciate folk who have the skills to support with fundraising activities. And, encouraging supporters to join our "Wonder Team"by making an annual donation helps too!

Great organisations need the guidance of good governors. So, if you're keen to support our amazing Committee, feel free to drop us a line. We can't do what we do without YOU!
