Volunteers Needed! Richmond Bacon Festival
Published on June 18th, 2018 by Jess Maffey
We are looking for Brew Crew and Green Team Volunteers that will help us create a fun, interactive event for of our guests at Richmond Bacon Festival!
Richmond Bacon Festival
Saturday, June 23 : 11am-4pm
17th Street Market
Two shifts available for each crew:
10:30am – 2:30pm
2:00 – 5:00pm
Brew Crew volunteers will help set up prior to gates opening, check wristbands and tickets for beer and wine customers, help pour beer and wine, and aid with breakdown and litter cleaning after the event ends.
Green Team Volunteers help maintain an upbeat and a pleasant atmosphere throughout the event. They monitor “eco-stations” throughout and make sure that recycling and trash are done right! Volunteers are equipped with gloves and long-handled “pickers,” and should be physically able to do a good bit of walking and a little lifting/changing of container liners. Volunteers will also help set up the Green Team table during the morning and evening shifts. This is a great opportunity to help make Richmond a greener place to live!
A volunteer parking map will be sent to each volunteer. For Brew Crew: don’t forget to bring your ID – if you do you will be transitioned to another volunteer opportunity. We will provide water and snacks. Please remember to bring cash if you wish to enjoy the festival’s vendors.
