March 30, 5-9pm: BBQ Showdown

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival Foundation by volunteering for Barbecue Showdown at W.R. Watt Arena.

We’re kicking off the 2017 FWFWF with Texas’ most iconic food. Pit masters from across the state come together to celebrate the festival launch and share their creations with guests. Fans will select their favorite dish, which will be crowned “The Best BBQ of the FWFWF.”

Please use the sign up below to indicate your area of interest. Volunteers must be at least 21. Please keep in mind that needs could change leading up to the day of the event, so we appreciate your flexibility! We ask that you be available for the full time of the shift that you sign up for.

Volunteers will receive a festival t-shirt and a ticket to their choice of BBQ Showdown, Desserts After Dark, or Rise + Dine. (One free ticket per volunteer even if volunteering at multiple events.)

Volunteer orientation will be held at 1pm on Saturday, March 25th at Botanical Research Institute of Texas (1700 University Drive). It is not mandatory, but we highly encourage all to attend to pick up t-shirts and get valuable information about the event and volunteer roles.

I will be in contact with additional information as we get closer to event time!
