Curious what happens behind the scenes? Want to lend a hand while celebrating + sharing your love of Charleston? Become a volunteer! We welcomed over 400 volunteers to our 2023 festival who got an inside look at the inner workings of the festival while playing an essential part of making the festival a memorable experience for all.

+ Welcoming guests and ensuring everyone is excited about the event

+ Assisting with check-in, including assisting in the set-up of the check-in area, scanning tickets, and wristbanding guests

+ Supporting the set up and break down of events, including setting tables, stocking chef stations, distributing disposable materials, etc.

+ Supporting our culinary + beverage talent through the set-up, event, and post-event process, ensuring that our incredible experts feel supported + celebrated

We could not put on this festival without our wonderful volunteers!
