Volunteers are needed for setting up the event, directing traffic, directing people inside the festival, handing out cups, delivering ice, and clean up. Volunteer duties will be assigned at the festival at the Volunteer Registration Table upon check in. All volunteers must be 21+.
All Saturday volunteers receive:
• A free t-shirt!
• One food voucher
There will be four shifts available for volunteers:
Friday Shift runs from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm on Friday and volunteers will be admitted into the festival on Saturday. Working this shift requires the volunteer to do some heavy lifting and unloading of delivery trucks. It is recommended for the "strongest" volunteers.
• Shift #1 runs from 9:00am to 1:00pm. (volunteers of this shift will be admitted into the event when their shift is over.)
• Shift #2 runs from 11:30am to 3:30pm. (volunteers of this shift will be admitted into the event when their shift is over.)
• Shift #3 runs from 1:30pm to 5:30pm. (volunteers of this shift will receive a ticket to the Valley Forge Beer and Cider Festival 2017.)
Our biggest need is organizing volunteers who are able to distribute promotional cards and posters about the festival to market it in new neighborhoods. If you sign up as a “Street Team” volunteer we will send you materials to distribute around your community – cafes, churches, libraries, restaurants, stores, etc. (anywhere where people will see them). There is no time requirement and distribution activities can be completed whenever and wherever is convenient to the “Street Team” volunteer. However, “Street Team” volunteers can earn tickets to the event for their efforts based on the number of locations materials are distributed at.
Sometimes the best pictures and stories are caught by our volunteers and attendees at the festival. Therefore, we need some volunteer photographers to help us capture great festival moments. If you sign up to be a “volunteer photographer,” we ask that you arrive and stay throughout the day to photograph the event. We’re looking for photographers with a different view that will capture our attendees, volunteers, exhibitors, programs, products, etc. We ask that all photographers send us a DVD/CD of the photos they have taken within a week of the event taking place. Volunteer photographers will be given a ticket to Valley Forge Beer & Cider Festival 2017.
We appreciate your interest in helping to make this event a success and promise a fun day filled with plenty of cider and an opportunity to enjoy a great festival.
