World Beer Festival Volunteers Needed!

All About Beer Magazine is returning to Cleveland for its second World Beer Festival and Engage! Cleveland has been presented with an amazing opportunity to not only help out and coordinate volunteers at the upcoming World Beer Festival, but to raise $5,000 in the process. This year World Beer Festival is on Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 12:00pm-5:00pm at Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica (2014 Sycamore Street, Cleveland, OH 44113). We need your help! Engage! Cleveland is looking for 75 volunteers to help out the day of the festival. We are asking that you volunteer and recruit others to volunteer. This will be an all hands on deck day, so please ask your family, friends, etc. to support this cause that we know everyone is passion about!

When volunteering, in addition to having a blast and helping raise money for Engage! Cleveland, you will get a meal voucher, a commemorative festival t-shirt, a half year subscription (three issues) to All About Beer Magazine, water and breaks. What a terrific way to give back to the community while having fun! The deadline to register is May 31st. Volunteers must be 21 years of age by June 14, 2014 in order to sign up. 

You can register here! When choosing your shift make sure you select the Festival Volunteer-11:00am-5:30pm shift. While registering, also make sure that you check Yes to the question: Are you volunteering on behalf of Engage! Cleveland, our partner charity?. It is the 4th question down in the "Other Information" section. If you are able to start volunteering early that morning at 8am for the Morning setup/VIP, you will get counted twice! If you are unable to volunteer during those two time slots, a small number of volunteers are needed the evening before and later that day, so please mark those!

On the day of the festival, when you arrive at Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica you will go to the volunteer registration table to check in. From there you will be told your volunteer position for the day and a short training will also be carried out as a part of Volunteer Check In. You can find the descriptions to the following positions at the bottom of the shift selection page when you begin to register. The positions for volunteers include:


  • Pourer
  • Brewer/Vendor/Volunteer Registration
  • Admissions
  • Ticketing/Merchandise


Please note there are positions indoors in air conditioning as well as seated options, so hopefully this works for everyone. You can note this when you register or let me know and I will be certain to make appropriate accommodations.

As stated before this is an amazing opportunity for Engage! Cleveland, Young Professionals in Cleveland and Cleveland itself. It is a terrific opportunity to have fun and give back to the community at the same time. We need your help! I hope to see you all there. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Register HERE as soon as possible, but by no later than May 31st. Don't miss out!
