Volunteering is Fun!


Calling all fun-seeking, energetic people of all ages!  If your idea of volunteering includes smelling the aroma of mouth watering barbeque, listening to non-stop music and meeting the greatest barbeque lovers in the south then this job is for you. The role of the volunteer is one of the most valuable assets to the festival. Without the help of volunteers, the festival would not take place.

The opportunities to volunteer are fun and as a flavorful thing there are to experience at the festival. There are many areas in which to share your talents including operations, merchandise sales, volunteer check-in, sponsor tents, finance, and entertainment. Volunteering includes four hour shifts during the two day festival, as well as set-up and clean-up prior to and after the event. When choosing an area to volunteer, please consider your physical limitations like standing for long periods of time/ability to lift and money handling skills. We try to match each volunteer with a job that they feel most comfortable performing. If you need more detail on the different volunteer positions, please email us @ mbhopper@eplus.net.

As a thank you to our volunteers, they will receive a t-shirt.  If you would like to become more involved in this fantastic fund-raising event and see your efforts benefiting this festival & our community, we would like to invite you to apply to become part of the Festival Committee. The areas of responsibility are diverse—what are your interests? These areas include finance, entertainment, hospitality, operations, sponsorship, volunteers, security, merchandise, competition, vendors, and publicity.


    As a token of our appreciation, a T-shirt will be provided for a minimum of 4 volunteer hours.
