How do I sign up to volunteer?

 

Please click on this link VOLUNTEER to see what shifts and times are available.

 

Do I need to be a member of the Trophy Club Women’s Club to volunteer?

 

No. This event will need hundreds of volunteers and we are grateful for anyone who donates their time to make this event happen.

 

Where do I check in for my shift?

 

Check in will be at the Volunteer table located near the food tents and entertainment stage. Please check-in 15 minutes prior to your assigned shift.

 

What should I wear?

 

A volunteer t-shirt will be provided for you. The weather can be unpredictable and you will need to dress appropriately. You may need sun-protective clothing and sunscreen, or you may need rain gear. Tennis shoes are highly recommended. Volunteers for Gatekeeper shifts will be exposed to weather so dress appropriately.

 

Can I bring my child with me to volunteer?

 

Please do NOT bring young children to your assigned shift. There are many Teen Volunteer opportunities if you have a teen interested in participating in the art festival. Students can get volunteer hours for school as well. 

 

Will I receive a reminder of my shift location and time?

 

All volunteers that provide a phone number and/or email will receive reminder messages.

 

What if no one replaces me for my shift?

 

Please contact one of the volunteer coordinators and they will send a replacement ASAP. Contact information will be provided when you check in. What if I sign up and am no longer able to make it? 

 

What if I still have a question that hasn't yet been answered?

Please send an email with any questions or concerns to Teryl Flynn 

 

I volunteered to be a Gatekeeper - what do I do?

 

Gatekeeper responsibilities can include making sure no one leaves the festival with alcohol, serving as additional eyes on the crowd, answering patron questions about restroom locations, ticket costs, etc. Gatekeepers should familiarize themselves with the general layout, restroom locations, food and beverage areas and artist areas. Maps are available at the volunteer check-in table and at ticket booths.
