Come volunteer with a friend. Volunteers make the event the success it is by assisting us in delivering a great experience from the time guests walk in to the time they walk out. Thank you in advance for considering offering a helping hand!

Benefits of Being a Volunteer:
All volunteers receive a free festival t-shirt and access to the event!

• Friday volunteers assist with pre-event set-up from 1PM-5PM and receive a ticket to attend the Coffee & Tea Festival either day at the end of their shift

• Saturday volunteers have 3 shifts to choose from and assist with registration,exhibitor services, coat check, seminars and other responsibilities during the event. Volunteers are given access to the festival after their shift is over.

•Shift 1: 9AM-2PM

•Shift 2: 11AM-4PM

•Shift 3: 1PM-6PM

• Sunday volunteers help us with registration, to close-up the event and move out exhibitors and will receive a ticket to a future Starfish Junction produced event.

•Shift 4: 9AM-2PM

•Shift 5: 11AM-4PM

•Shift 6: 1PM-6PM

Sometimes the best pictures and stories are caught by our volunteers and attendees at the festival. Therefore, we need some volunteer photographers to help us capture great festival moments. If you sign up to be a “volunteer photographer,” we ask that you arrive and stay throughout the day to photograph the event. We’re looking for photographers with a different view that will capture our attendees, volunteers, exhibitors, seminars, products, etc. Volunteer photographers will be able to enjoy the festival, within reason, during their volunteer shift as long as the listed photos to capture are obtained since we know this shift is longer than others. All volunteer photographers must bring their own DSLR camera or similar for use (no phone photography, please). This is necessary since we need high-resolution, editable photos. Starfish Junction cannot provide cameras. Further, we ask that all photographers send us a link to the photos taken during the event via Dropbox (or similar service) within a week of the event taking place for posting to our website and social media pages. If photos are not provided or a limited number of photos are taken, volunteer may risk future volunteer eligibility with Starfish Junction. We will also provide a pair of tickets to a future Starfish Junction event upon receiving the photos.
