Event Volunteers for the Monterey Bay Jade Festival
What Does a Volunteer Actually Do?
Event volunteers walk the event to provide a visual presence throughout the event and at the three entrances. Our goal is to leverage the presence to ensure the safety and security of the event for visitors and the 50 vendor booths Volunteers will “mix and mingle” with visitors and vendors while wearing a “MBJF Staff” vest. There will be six volunteers walking the event at all times.
What is the Length of a Shift?
Each shift will be for a three hour period during which each volunteer will be rotated around the event to both walk the event in a designated area and also be stationed at one of the three entrances.
What Shifts Are Available to Sign-Up as a Volunteer?

Anything Else I Should Know?
Though as a fledgling non-profit we cannot afford to compensate volunteers, the Monterey Bay Jade Festival will provide each volunteer with an event T-shirt and refreshments during the event as a thank you for assisting us.
