Pre-Event Volunteering Roles


Event Pack In Assistants:

These volunteers are not to be messed with! They are energetic, enthusiastic and love getting their hands dirty. They will be the crew that are working during the build up to the big day by assisting us to set up the entire festival. If you think you have what it takes and want a workout that is engaging and fun, this is the role you are perfect for!

Event Day Volunteer Roles


Event General Assistants:

Fancy yourself as a bit of an all-rounder that can easily adapt to new environments? Then look no further, this is the role for you! These volunteers are adaptable and love just getting stuck in where needed. They get a taster of various roles such as assistants at the seminars and silent disco, giving a hand at the coat check and the info centre as well as making sure the festival runs smoothly. – If you think adapt easily, this is the role for you!

Event Entrance Assistants:

If your friends describe you as energetic, enthusiastic and an all-round hype human then we have the perfect volunteer role for you! This crew will be the face of the festival on the day and welcome all the beer and food enthusiasts as they arrive! We need fun and excitement at the front line – think you can bring that to the table, then we want you!

Event Pack Out Assistants:

This year we are on the lookout for a sports team or club that is looking to raise some funds for their group. If your team of 10+ people and are energetic, enthusiastic and love getting your hands dirty, then we would love your help in finishing the final pack out once the festival has come to a close. Give us an email: info@dunedinbeerfest.co.nz if you think you have the team or club is interested in doing the pack out for a donation.
