Volunteers should arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled shift time to check in at the Welcome/Lower Admissions tent, get to their festival position, and have enough time to get ready.
- Blue t-shirt: If you have a Blueberry Festival t-shirt from a previous year, please wear it! Blueberry Festival shirts are limited, and sizes are first come first serve. If you do not have a shirt, please wear a blue shirt for your volunteer shift.
- Comfortable shoes: preferably with a closed toe.
- Mask: All volunteers must wear a mask throughout their shift. We will have disposable masks available if you do not have one or forget yours!
It is likely to be hot; sunglasses, sunscreen, and extra water are recommended. Water will be available on-site for volunteers, but it never hurts to bring an extra bottle. We also recommend being prepared for rain!
