Q: Can I attend the Savory Samplings at the Marketplace Session I if I am volunteering later in the day?
A: We ask that all volunteers who are working at Savory Samplings at the Marketplace Session II refrain from attending Marketplace Session I. Understandably it is not appropriate for volunteers to be sampling wine, beer, and spirits prior to working as a volunteer.
Q: Can I volunteer for more than one shift?
A: You are welcome to sign up for multiple shifts over the course of the three-day event. If you wish to work multiple shifts please make a note in your inquiry or contact the volunteer coordinator directly.
Q: What should I wear?
A: Volunteers will be asked to wear white shirts, black pants, and comfortable shoes. Volunteering for Thursday and Friday evening requires black, semi-formal cocktail attire.
Q: Where should I park and does it cost anything?
A: You will receive a complimentary parking pass within close proximity of the event.
Q: Are there any rules or policies I should be aware of while volunteering?
A: While you are volunteering, please refrain from drinking any alcoholic beverages, and from sampling food from exhibitors, before and during your shift, as they have budgeted for a specific amount of attendees. We invite you to get the full Harvest on the Harbor experience and purchase tickets to any our events to fully take advantage of all that Harvest has to offer.
Q: What is the cancellation policy if I can't make it?
A: If you cannot fulfill your commitment, we ask that you allow us at least one week to fill your spot. It is incredibly important that we are not short-staffed for this event, and last-minute cancellations make it very difficult for us to fill your spot.
Q: Should I be prepared to bring anything with me?
A: In order to enter the Harvest on the Harbor event area, a valid I.D. will be required. There is no storage space for personal items, so please plan to leave those in your vehicle.
