Volunteers – The Heart of the Festival

The Virginia Wine & Garlic Festival is only made possible by the 200+ volunteers who assist year after year.  Once again, the Amherst Rotary Club is seeking volunteers to help staff this event.  Funds the Club receives for its assistance are used to support the Amherst Rotary Club’s Globe Project, which provides world globes to all of our ACPS second-grade students.

Volunteers must commit to a five-hour shift.  There are three possible shifts:

Saturday, 12:30 PM – 5:30 PM
Sunday, 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM or 12:30 PM – 5:30 PM

Partial or split shifts cannot be accommodated. For scheduling purposes, we ask that you make a 1st and 2nd shift choice.  Spouses and friends are welcome to volunteer with you! Volunteers must be 18 or older.

Volunteers will receive a one-day personal pass to the event, an event tee shirt, a food voucher, and a commemorative wine glass. 

If you would like to volunteer please email Leigh Pigg at garlicfestivalvolunteers@gmail.com by October 1st with the following information:

  • Your name

  • Phone number (home, cell)

  • 1st and 2nd shift choices

A schedule of assignments and shifts will be distributed to all volunteers as soon as possible.
