Volunteer

There’s lots of farm equipment around, but it’s our volunteers who are the most important engine of the Manitoba Threshermen’s Reunion & Stampede. From selling tickets, to driving tractors, to sharing expertise about vintage farm equipment with festival-goers, our volunteers are the people who make the MTRS one of Manitoba’s most popular summer festivals. Our volunteers work hard, have a great time, and care deeply about the success of the MTRS.
