Music City Brewer's Festival 2nd Shift - Second Harvest Needs Volunteers!

The Music City Brewer's Festival will held on Saturday, July 27th in the Walk of Fame Park, behind the Downtown Nashville Hilton. This event sells out every year, so one of the best ways to make sure you can get in is to be a volunteer!

We need up to 50 volunteers to help out with the 5 – 10 pm shift. Please read all the information below.

  • The two volunteer positions for this event are entrance volunteers and beer pours. This year, we need more entrance volunteers than beer pourers. Therefore, you will be assigned to a position based on the need. However, please feel free to state your preference, but know that you may be needed and assigned to work in the other position. The entrance volunteer position is most important at the beginning of each session to help us check-in attendees as quickly as possible without a long wait. After all the patrons are inside the gates, the entrance volunteers will be able to take turns and enjoy the event.
  • Please only sign-up to volunteer if you are certain that you will be able to keep the commitment. If you do find that you are no longer able to volunteer, please let us know as soon as possible.
  • Parking passes are not available for volunteers. You will be on your own to find parking.
  • A reminder email and detailed check-in instructions will be sent one week prior to the event.
  • All volunteers must complete their registration with Second Harvest and sign a volunteer waiver.

    Is there a way to find out if you are on the volunteer list? I got a confirmation that I registered last week but did not receive an email. I have been out of town so I did not see all of the messages about confirmation emails until today.

    July 27, 2013

    • Kurt A.

      You're all good, Lindy... just come down at 5:00 and you'll be good to go. Thanks!

    Is there any way to sign up now?

    July 26, 2013

    • Kurt A.

      Thanks for the inquiry, but it's too late to get registered with Second Harvest. There will be lots of volunteer opportunities to come and I hope you'll join us then!

    If anyone else is interested in carpooling, Mark W. and I are meeting at the Kroger at Nolensville and Concord Rd. We'll be heading out at 4:00 let me know if you would like to join us.

    July 26, 2013

  • Kurt A.

    Also, we're dropping below the number of volunteers that we need for the event. If you have a friend or two who want to go, there are a couple spots that have opened up. Please have them register though!

      Mine says "session A" but has 5pm.

      July 25, 2013

    • Vickie

      Mine said session A, 10:30 - but Kurt said to follow your original sign up (reporting at 5 and will see where they need me)

    I have one more person that can come for the 5-10 shift if you want to add one more under me. Our shifts also came in wrong. It said the 11am shift as well. I am going to bring my group at 4 for the 5-10pm shift as you advised below. Let me know if that is ok! See you guys there. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    July 24, 2013

    • Kurt A.

      That will be great! Yes, please be there at 5:00 and your additional person would be appreciated. I'll be there for the beginning of the late shift to make sure that everyone gets assignments. Thanks!

    Hey guys, FYI, just wanted to let you all know about some parking prices. Coming from Broadway, turn on third avenue, between Commerce and Church is a $5 parking garage, again on third turn into little alley behind Hotel Indigo cross over Printer's Alley and to right is a $10 parking garage. Sometimes the Hotel Indigo will have $5 specials to park in their garage but if they don't have a sign up don't go into the garage, cause it is expensive. Unless they jack up the prices cause of the Fest or are full you should be able to get into these garages.

    Anyone coming from the Brentwood/Nolensville area who would like to carpool please let me know! This way we can split parking and not have to walk back to the car in the dark by ourselves.

    I will comment on some of the things from last year about what to expect. First, you are responsible for your own parking. We're leaving late, so make sure it is a relatively safe area. Next, get there by 5pm! There was a tent for volunteer check in. They're very organized! I believe the gates for the public do not open until 6, but there is a lot of work to do beforehand. Eat before or bring a sandwich, as you will be busy most of the night. Your name will be on the list (assuming you completed the form) and you may need to actually sign something. Bring your ID! These are legal forms & they take this step seriously. Finally, someone will tell you about your assignment (where to go, etc.). Someone should come around to tell you a little about the beer you are pouring. Remember, we are volunteers. It was a busy, fun night - relax and enjoy. Hope this helped. Vickie

    Where are we to park?

    July 23, 2013

    • Kendall

      Its downtown parking - 'to each his own', you can park at/under event for $$ (Hilton), or choose any cheaper lots and walk. I will ride a bike. http://nashville.abou...­
