Be a Volunteer
Please join us at the Taste of Punta Gorda as a volunteer. Set-up volunteers are needed on Saturday, February 29th, and event-day volunteers are needed on Sunday, March 1st.


On Saturday afternoon, the Set Up Crew will hang banners, put up perimeter fencing, set up tables and chairs, prepare trash bins, put out directional signs, etc.  On Sunday morning volunteers will guide vendors and restaurants to their assigned spaces, put out trash bins, assist setting up electrical service for some restaurants and vendors, etc.  From 11:00 AM to event close, volunteers will serve as Event Marshals, Volunteer Check-in Assistants, Admissions staff, Drink Ticket Sales staff, Beverage Tent staff, and finally on the Clean-up Crew. There's lots to do, and you'll have great fun, too!
