Thank you to everyone who volunteered!
Help us build a better beer community, get involved, and have a great time doing it!
In each festival location, World Beer Festivals partners with a local organization that contributes to its community’s culture and progressiveness. This year’s charity partner, again, is Artsplosure, which was founded in 1979 to present high quality and accessible arts festivals and to identify, nurture, and showcase emerging artists. Their current, major projects are First Night Raleigh and Artsplosure – The Raleigh Arts Festival.
Volunteers, in addition to supporting Artsplosure, will receive:
- a half year subscription (three issues) of All About Beer Magazine
- a Festival Volunteer t-shirt
- an invitation to the Volunteer Appreciation Party with complimentary food and beer
Plus, we are raffling off these exciting prizes for volunteers – sign up for both sessions to be entered twice!
- Two Gold Circle tickets to Band Together‘s upcoming concert featuring Hall & Oates
- Two “Year of Beer” memberships from Bottle Revolution
To join us, click the link above to sign up (name, contact info, preferred assignment, etc). Afterwards, expect our Volunteer Coordinator to contact you about training, meet ups, work assignments and management for day of the Festival. Most of our volunteers are assigned to a brewery to assist dispensing beer and discussing its attributes. Others host hospitality areas, assist with registration, or sell Festival merchandise. ** We cannot guarantee assignment to a specific brewery, but will try our best to accommodate. Brewery lineup has not been confirmed, and usually isn’t final until the week of the event. Please be flexible if your favorite brewery does not have a booth.
We ask that you download and read our Volunteer Handbook, which is the basis of our training session, by clicking below. Education is a large part of our World Beer Festivals, and the handbook is a great to start. We will help you build on your knowledge along the way, and hope you are excited to learn. You can also check out Beer 101 or the Moore Square park map.
