Greeters

volunteer2Greeters serve as the first people patrons see at the fest. In order to make a great first impression, greeters will be available to answer questions, direct people to the correct place and offer program guides. The greeter team also helps fill in gaps for other teams if needed (wrist-banding, line organization, distributing tasting glasses, etc).

While volunteering as a greeter, you will need to embrace the opportunity to help other teams while still being outgoing, cheerful and eager to help festival patrons. Please note that all information about the event and venue will be offered prior to event dates and also during the team meeting at the beginning of your shift.
