  • Cleaning and maintenance Ambassadors

Ribfest greeters provide a warm welcome to all inbound Ribfest fans as well as answer any questions they might have. A short training session is held prior to each volunteer shift.

Cleaning and maintenance assistants help keep the entire Ribfest venue sparkling clean. Specific duties include clearing, wiping down tables and chairs, maintaining cleanliness at water stations, and litter control.

Entrance and exit monitors to ensure they`re used only by authorized individuals and direct all Ribfest patrons to the main entrance and exit. 

Volunteer shifts are a minimum of four hours and a maximum of up to eight hours in duration. Regular breaks are scheduled and water is provided.

If you’re enthusiastic, and energetic, enjoy working with the public, and want to make this year`s Ribfest the best ever, please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator at [email protected]
