There are a variety of volunteer roles available to be involved in the festival, from the intimate celebrity Master Classes and festival operations, to the Auction Committee, admissions, beverage/culinary serving opportunities and general ambassadors for wayfinding and guest relations.
You must be 21 years of age or older to volunteer for the festival. Volunteers receive a souvenir Georgia Food + Wine Festival apron and an opportunity to enjoy the event in which they are volunteering after their shift ends – or even free event ticket opportunities, depending upon the number of volunteer hours a volunteer can commit. Volunteers that participate in volunteering over 12 hours in a variety of volunteer roles/shifts will earn a free “Sunday Funday/Oyster Roast VIP Lounge” ticket.
Volunteer attire includes black pants/shorts/skirts with collared white shirts. Depending upon the event (seated dinners, Master Classes, brunch, etc. will require long pants and long-sleeved collared shirts). All volunteers are not allowed to drink any alcoholic beverages while volunteering, will be required to wear closed-toe shoes and must sign a waiver of liability.
Volunteer aprons and credentials will need to be removed before participating in event tastings. A special discount Promo code will be provided to volunteers for opportunities to purchase Georgia Food + Wine Festival tickets. You will receive your promo code after signing-up for your volunteer shift.
There will be a mandatory attendance Volunteer Orientation Session scheduled on Tuesday, March 22, 2022 from 6 – 7 pm at Jim R. Miller Park event facility. Each volunteer will receive their festival credentials and apron at the Volunteer Orientation session.
