Our two-day festival events (RiverFest & Craft Show and Fall Arts & Craft Show) draw thousands of people to town and every season we count on our exceptional volunteers to help us host these amazing events for the Town of Occoquan. Your help is very much appreciated.
Shifts typically last 3 hours.
Volunteers will be supplied with a volunteer t-shirt.
Help is needed in multiple areas: Shuttle Stop, Vendor Assistance, Information Booth, Set Up, and Flex.
If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support!
Vendor Assistance Team
Volunteers are needed to assist vendors during the show. Volunteers will walk the streets of the show to ensure vendor questions and concerns are addressed. Volunteers may be asked to “booth sit” for breaks and vendors very much appreciate being cared for by our volunteers in this way. Volunteers will watch the booth to prevent theft and inform customers the vendor will return shortly, but will not conduct transactions on behalf of the vendor. These volunteers are also needed to ensure vendors adhere to the rules of the show and set up their booths accordingly. Vendors must not block walkways or sidewalks, as they must be kept open for access to shops, to facilitate foot traffic, and to provide emergency access. Additionally, food vendors must have prices posted at all times.
Shuttle Stop Team
Volunteers will ensure that each patron over the age of 12 that rides the shuttle pays the $8.00 round-trip shuttle fare upon drop off at the festival and receives a stamp allowing them into the show and indicating what stop to which they should return in order to board the shuttle back to the lot. Experience with handling money is preferred.
Information Booth Team
Love people and love our Town? Become an Occoquan Ambassador! Help us staff an information booth on site to help answer questions for festival patrons and share the many fun things happening in town all season long.
We consider this group the most “flexible” volunteers. These volunteers need to be ready to go wherever they are needed during their shift. These volunteers will be used to “fill in” for volunteers who do not show up or to cover last minute emergency needs.
Set Up Team
Saturday morning set up includes helping staff set tables, tents, and chairs in River Mill Park, at locations along the streets, and at shuttle bus stops.
