Friends of Founder’s Day Volunteer
The Founders Day Festival is starting a new tradition by inviting a few of our local residents to become volunteers during the Founders Day Festival. There are a few opportunities below for anyone who wishes to join our Team as volunteers during different times throughout the weekend. If any of these volunteer opportunities is interesting to you, please send an e-mail to DrippingVolunteers@gmail.com and someone will get back with you on the details of who you need to meet, and where/when you need to meet them to help out. This opportunity is for those who wish to be a part of our great city’s celebration and can either be a one-time event or can turn into your yearly volunteer tradition.
Set-Up Crew: As a member of the setup crew you would be asked to join the team the Sunday Prior to the event and hang fliers, put up security fences, and prepare the street for the upcoming celebration. This volunteer opportunity is crucial to the safety of the event participants so they do not harm themselves in dangerous areas. Time commitment (4 hours)
Parade Crew: As a member of the parade crew you could sign up for one of many different volunteer duties before/during/after the parade on the opening Friday of Founder’s Day. These volunteer opportunities include: Float Crew Prep, Parade Site Prep, Parade Safety/Security, and Parade Site Teardown. Time commitment (4 hours)
Teardown Crew: As a member of the teardown crew you would be asked to join the team at 4:00 the final Sunday of the event and ensure the site is restored to pre-festival order. Volunteers would help in traffic control, removal of safety/security fencing, retrieval of traffic cones, and general site cleanup. Time commitment (4 hours)
**We are working on getting an official staff EVENT Volunteer shirt that will designate you as an official Friend of Founders Day Volunteer if you can commit to multiple years as a volunteer. If you just want to help out one time, we will give you a volunteer T-shirt at the event.**
