Site Host/Hostess 18 years+
Site Hosts/Hostesses help ensure attendees have an amazing experience while helping to keep the venue sparkling clean. Our Site Hosts/Hostesses help ensure attendees have an enjoyable time at Ribfest by handing out wet naps and napkins, ensuring dining area tables are free from garbage and sparkling clean and offering assistance where needed. Site Hosts/Hostesses may be asked to help in other areas of the venue as needed (i.e. Selling tickets, giving other volunteers a chance for a break, etc.). If you enjoy plenty of fresh air and exercise this might be the job for you!

Beverage Servers (Non-Alcoholic)
Beverage Servers assist in our location selling non-alcoholic beverages (water, pop, juice) to go with attendee’s mouth-watering ribs on a hot August day.
