Alexandria Food and Wine Festival

The 2015 Alexandria Food and Wine Festival is an annual signature event that transforms the Oronoco Bay Park into a lively festival, complete with live entertainment, a children’s corner, food and wine tasting, and a food demonstration showcase area. Over 10,000 people are anticipated for this community event. People will be able to sample food and wine from diverse local restaurants and Virginia wineries. The event runs from 12-6 p.m., rain or shine, on Saturday, June 27, 2015.
 
We are recruiting volunteers to help run the event! Volunteers can choose from 6 time slots based on their interest and schedule. The task that you may be matched with for each shift is as follows:
 
7:00-11:00 a.m.: Greet and check-in vendors and assist as needed during set up
 
11:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m.: Children’s area (moon bounce and assist with activities); staff the information tent/first aid tent; survey attendees; assist with food competition as needed
 
11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.: Sell tickets; check ID’s; monitor wine tent entrance and exit; assist attendees storing or picking up purchased wine bottles (please note, individuals volunteering for this time slot will need to attend an orientation about 1-2 weeks before the festival, specific date and time to be announced)
 
2:30-6:00 p.m.: Children’s area (moon bounce and activities); information tent/first aid/water; survey attendees
 
3:00-6:00 p.m.: Sell tickets; check ID’s; monitor wine tent entrance and exit; assist attendees storing or picking up purchased wine bottles (please note, individuals volunteering for this time slot will need to attend an orientation about 1-2 weeks before the festival, specific date and time to be announced)

Please note:

-Each volunteer will receive 8 tasting tickets that can be used for sampling food and nonalcoholic beverages before or after their shift
-Most volunteer tasks will have volunteers interacting with festival attendees, vendors, and staff, so successful volunteers will be comfortable speaking up and answering questions, or directing individuals to the appropriate festival staff member!
