Volunteering for one of Garrett County’s largest events is fun and rewarding! And benefits two local charities: HART for Animals and Garrett Lakes Arts Festivals.
Volunteers are needed for:
- Set up Thursday & Friday
- Guest Wine Pourers
- Wine Store helpers and Cashiers
- Tear Down Sunday
Several shifts available! You’ll receive free non-tasting admission and a festival t-shirt, or have the option to purchase a tasting ticket in advance and at a discounted price of $22.50 (or $52.50 for advance Premium Tasting ticket).
2020 DEEP CREEK LAKE ART & WINE FESTIVAL VOLUNTEER POLICY
Volunteers are essential to the purpose, programming, and success of the Art & Wine Festival. We value them and are grateful to them, both beyond adequate words!
Without the service, talents, time, energy, and commitment of our volunteers, the Festival would not have the reputation for quality and service that it has and would not benefit, to the extent that it does, our charities, HART for Animals and GLAF (Garrett Lakes Art Festival), and Garrett County as a whole.
Volunteers will receive adequate preparation for their responsibilities, work in an environment where they are valued and appreciated, and receive respectful treatment. In exchange for their time and energy and a minimum commitment of 3.5 hours, volunteers will receive one free NON-TASTING admission to the Festival, a special Festival t-shirt, and food and beverages while they are on duty. If the volunteer choses to partake in the wine tasting (which includes a commemorative glass) before or after their shift, they may purchase a Wine Tasting ticket online at a discounted price of $22.50, or a Premium Wine Tasting ticket for $55.50 per volunteer which must be purchased in advance. The Premium Wine Tasting ticket is new this year and includes the regular tasting ticket plus admittance to the Premium Wine Tasting area. Tasting tickets are $37 at the gate and $70 for Premium Wine Tasting ticket. Being part of an exciting event that benefits our local community is an added bonus!
