Volunteering for Portland VegFest

Portland VegFest is just around the corner and we need your help! Please consider volunteering this year. Just one 3-hour shift gets you FREE ADMISSION to both days of VegFest. If you volunteer for more than 6 hours in a day you will get a free meal voucher and every 3 hour shift you do during the weekend earns you an entry into a special drawing for amazing prizes from our speakers and supporters! Recycling shifts earn double the entries!

​Here's waht we need...
* Friday, September 20 help with setup from 12:30-4:30pm.
* ​Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd we need help with
- morning setup
- nightly cleanup
- passing out programs at the entryway
- doing photography
- staffing the NW VEG info booth (tabling experience w/ NW VEG required)
- selling memberships and t-shirts (do you have a smart phone?)
- passing out samples for companies that could not personally attend
- checking in volunteers and exhibitors
- assisting in the classrooms during the chef demos
- helping at a recycling station
- assisting in the kids or teen area (face painters needed) or dressing up in a fruit/veggie costume.

Shifts are generally three hours long beginning around 9:30am, 12:15pm, and 3pm.

Please email Chelsea Davis and [masked] for more information.

    Adrienne, I don't know where you live but often people will park in the huge parking lot adjacent to the outside Lloyd Center Theaters and then ride the Max as Leslie had mentioned.

  • Leslie aka paul h.

    Adrienne, try the Max!!

    I recall last year the parking was more expensive then the entry fee. Does anyone have free or cheap parking suggestions? I don't mind walking a bit.
