Volunteers Needed for Richmond Dog Festival!
Published on August 28th, 2019 by Enrichmond Foundation
Enrichmond needs Brew Crew, Green Team, Bounce House, and Doggie Cool Down Station volunteers that will help us create a fun, interactive event for all of our guests at the Richmond Dog Festival!
*Please note: The Richmond Dog Festival will feature lots of – you guessed it – DOGS! If you do not enjoy working with or around dogs, please let us know.
Richmond Dog Festival
Saturday, September 21
11:00am – 4:00pm
Chimborazo Park in Church Hill
3215 E Broad St, Richmond, VA 23223
Two shifts available for most crews:
Morning: 10:30AM – 1:30 PM
Afternoon: 1:30PM – 4:30PM
Brew Crew Volunteers will help set up prior to gates opening, check wristbands and tickets for beer and wine customers, and help pour beer and wine. We only need morning shift volunteers for this crew.
Must be 21 or older to volunteer for this team. Must present ID. If you do not have a valid ID, you will be transferred to a different volunteer opportunity.
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!
Bounce House volunteers are part of Enrichmond’s Kids Zone and are responsible for remaining at the entrance of the bounce house and monitoring activity. Bounce House volunteers make sure that kids stay safe during their bounce time!
Doggie Cool Down Station volunteers will help hot dogs stay cool during the festival by keeping water bowls clean and full and by keeping the fans running at the cool down station.
A volunteer parking map will be sent to each volunteer. We will provide water and snacks. If you have questions, you can reach out to [email protected]. Please sign up to volunteer following the links above.
