Elizabeth Celtic Festival
Become a Festival Volunteer
Where we need help:
Prior to the Festival: HELP US GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT THIS GREAT FESTIVAL!
Help us promote this Festival! We're now in the count-down...three months or less until the Elizabeth Celtic Festival.
You can help by sending "e-fliers" (pdf of the standard page poster)
to friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.
Where we still need help:
The Work that makes the Festival happen
Set-up and Take-down:
It's time to set the Festival up! We're doing some of this on Thursday afternoon and evening (7-19-2012) and the rest on Friday (7-20-2012). There are a multitude of things to be set up:
stages, fencing, signs, banners, a footbridge, the main gate entrance, site preparation, tents, tables, chairs,
trash cans and parking barriers. (This might not be a complete list.)
Any help is appreciated, whether it's one evening,one afternoon, or just a couple of hours. Please call
Alana Wolner (303-646-5946) (M-F nights) (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) or Neil Gillette (303-332-6133) if you can help with the set up or take down, or if you have any questions.
We have have experienced people who know where and how things are to be set up. It really helps to have as many people as we can get
for both set-up and take-down (especially on Sunday evening).
On Sunday evening (starting at 4:30 p.m.), we do our best to take it all down and put it away.
Some work will probably also take place on Monday, following the Festival.
The Main Entrance:
On the days of the 2012 Festival (Saturday, July 21st; and Sunday, July 22nd),
The first contact that Celtic Festival guests and competitors have
is with our parking volunteers and at the main admissions gate.
We're looking for people who are cheerful, patient, and helpful.
Shifts: Morning--7:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon. Afternoon--12:00 noon - 4:00 p.m.
We need people who will empty the trash cans (this is important)
Understandably, this is not a task that most people want to volunteer for.
Generally, teams of two or three people go out with a golf cart and swap an empty
rolling trash can for a full one, then go and empty the full can in the dumpster.
Shifts (either Sat. or Sun.):
Early--11 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Mid Afternoon: 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Late Afternoon--3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. and beyond, as possible--thru Close.
Helping with Performances & Competitions:
You can also be a volunteer helping our Entertainers (three performance venues needing helpers), Exhibitors,
and in competitions (this year in The Haggis Toss Preliminaries & Championships, Solo Piping, Highland Dancing or Scottish Heavy Events).
Shifts (either Sat. or Sun.):
Morning--8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Mid Shift Overlap: 11:00 a.m. - 3:15 p.m.
Afternoon--1:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. (or thru Close)
It's fun to work at the Festival! You can learn a lot, too. h3>Two tickets (one for yourself, one for a friend or family member)
Volunteers who work a standard 4-hour shift get:
Plenty of free bottled water while on duty
Adult (over 21) Volunteers get a free beer at our volunteer tent when you're done with you're shift;
Or--if you aren't that old or if you don't care for alcohol, you get a free soft drink.
People volunteering with set-up on Thursday or Friday get a ticket to the Festival.
