All Thursday shift volunteers will receive a complimentary ticket to the beer festival.
Friday Shift runs from 10:00AM to 3:00PM on Friday. Volunteers for this shift will receive one complimentary ticket to one session of the festival on Saturday. Working this shift requires the volunteer to do some heavy lifting and unloading of delivery trucks. It is recommended for the "strongest" volunteers.

We need to spread the word about the Spring Craft Beer Festival at Belmont Park Racetrack and need volunteers who are able to distribute promotional cards and posters about the festival in new neighborhoods. If you sign up to be a “Street Team” volunteer we will send you materials to distribute around your community – your local bars, restaurants, beer distributors, etc. (anywhere that people will see them). There is no time requirement and distribution activities can be completed whenever and wherever is convenient to you. However, “Street Team” volunteers can earn rewards for their efforts based on the number of locations materials are distributed at.
We appreciate your interest in helping to make this event a success and promise a fun filled day with great food , and an opportunity to enjoy a great international beer tasting.
If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the form below, providing us with your name, email address, phone number and the shift you are interested in working. The Volunteer Administrator will confirm your shift and follow up with you as the event date draws near.
