Waterford Harvest Festival is always looking for helping hands. Without our volunteers the festival could not be what it is. If you’re not afraid of a bit of hard work and prepared to have lots of fun while doing it, come and join us in September. Festival volunteers cover a number of important festival tasks from stewarding, event safety, market liaison, artist liaison, information centre, production, child safety and just about everything in between.
We may as well be honest and say that most volunteers will be asked to take a turn in tidying/litter picking. It’s a rotten job we know, but we’ll try to rota it so that nobody has to do it for more than an hour and will supply the necessary equipment.
Join us and help us put Waterford on the food tourism map.
To apply for volunteering please contact Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org or 051 840010.
See you in September!
