The 2013 Riverfest Volunteer Shirt
Riverfest would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our 2800+ community volunteers. We hope you will consider volunteering for Riverfest 2013.
Volunteerism is the key to Riverfest’s success. A volunteer board consisting of 30 community leaders and a 230 member volunteer committee work year-round on the festival. As one of Riverfest’s 2,800 festival volunteers, your three-five hour shift is key to the success of the event – making it possible to produce a quality family festival for a low admission price. Riverfest has been able to offer the festival at a fraction of the cost of other events because of the contributions of time and effort by the volunteers – because of you! Click on the sign-up page and complete the form if you are interested in volunteering. If you have questions, please firstname.lastname@example.org.
For your volunteer time you will receive:
- Free Weekend Admission.
- A Free Volunteer T-Shirt sponsored by Delta Dental
- A chance to win some great prizes from Best Buy if you complete your shift(s)!
- Special Recognition to organizations who staff an area.
- That Great Feeling of Giving Back!
Things to consider before signing up to volunteer:
Arrivals & Breaks
You must check in at the Volunteer Tent sponsored by Delta Dental at the beginning of each shift you work. The Volunteer check-in tent is located in front of the Museum Center Building (across the street from Flying Fish). You will need to check in 45 minutes prior to your shift start time to insure you arrive at your location in plenty of time. Volunteer check-in will have a list of volunteers scheduled to work, and you will be asked to sign in at your destination as well. This allows Riverfest to be sure that each volunteer has arrived at the proper location. Due to the length of our volunteer shifts, we ask that you not take breaks unless absolutely necessary. If you do need a break, please coordinate this with the Riverfest staff member (wearing a white polo shirt) in charge of your volunteer location.
All volunteers age 16 and up will be asked to show photo ID when they arrive at volunteer check-in. In some cases volunteers will be also be asked to show proper ID when they arrive at the actual volunteer location.
All volunteers will also be given a complimentary bottle of water provided by Central Arkansas Water when they check in for their shift. Alcoholic beverages may not be consumed during a volunteer’s shift!
