It's almost time for Bootfest. The annual free event happens Friday, Sept. 30th and Saturday, Oct. 1st. and organizers are looking for volunteers for a number of duties, like helping run booths and attractions. Remember, you can volunteer for more than one, and you'll get a few perks for volunteering, including a Boootfest t-shirt or button, and you also get to hobnob in the air-conditioned hospitality area and enjoy free snacks

The following are areas that can use some help:

  • Beer or Frozen Drink Booth
  • Ticket Booth
  • ID Checking
  • Bootfest Merchandise/Water Booth
  • Volunteer Check-In
  • Volunteer Hospitality
  • Kids Corral
  • Blue Sky 5K Monitors

Volunteers who are 13 years-old or younger must be accompanied by a parent of legal guardian while they are volunteering.

There are also group/corporate volunteer opportunities for groups of 10 or more from any one company or civic groups. Volunteers can wear their company/group shirts and will be given a volunteer button.
