Volunteering is your opportunity to be a part of this Festival!
We are looking for dedicated volunteers who are willing to assist in a variety of areas such as admission gates, parking attendants, and more. Each four-hour volunteer shift entitles you to receive a free T-shirt to wear during your volunteer shift and one complimentary admission wristband to the Wine in the Woods Festival which is good for either Saturday or Sunday. Admission includes a commemorative wine glass for sampling wine from the wineries at the festival. Volunteer positions are on a first-come, first-served basis.
