Volunteers will be stationed in the beer tent, checking IDs and pouring and serving beer to attendees over 21. Volunteers will also be responsible for keeping the area clean and organized. All proceeds from the beer garden benefit the Montgomery Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that supports education and community service programs. Volunteers must be 21+ yrs. of age. We strongly prefer volunteers who have a valid Basset license.
Volunteers will be responsible for cleaning up festival grounds during and after the festival to ensure that the property is spotless and trash-free. This is an excellent opportunity for community service hours for those ages 15 and older. Volunteers must be 18+ years of age to work the closing shift due to curfew.
