Thanks for being interested in volunteering at the World of Montgomery Festival on Sunday, October 21, 2018. We always need more help.
The World of Montgomery Festival celebrates and displays the rich cultural heritages of Montgomery County. The festival will be held at Montgomery College- Rockville parking lot (51 Mannakee Street, Rockville 20850) on Sunday, October 21, 2018, from noon to 4:00pm.
Sponsored by Montgomery County, Fund for Montgomery and organized by KID Museum, the festival includes an international village, a global kitchen with chef demonstrations of traditional ethnic food, a Parade of Cultures, two performance stages of traditional dance and music, connections through service, traditional arts and fun activities for the whole family.
We need volunteers to help with setting up the festival site, and clean-up, as well as help during the festival day with running activities. There are three volunteer shifts from 8:00am-11:30am; 11:00-2:30; 2:00-5:30pm. Volunteers are welcome to work more than one shift. We particularly need assistance for the morning shift for set-up and for break-down.
Our volunteers are important to us and we will try to make the experience as fun for you as possible. The volunteer coordinator will assign you to whatever need is most pressing during the festival. When you check-in let the volunteer coordinator know if you have any physical limitations or don’t want to be doing a specific task.
Volunteers are volunteering with Montgomery County, MD (not Montgomery College) and will be asked to fill out a County volunteer form.
Check-in for World of Montgomery volunteers will be at the festival site at the volunteer office in the Science building.
Dress appropriately for the weather. If it is raining – wear a raincoat. It could be hot. Wear sunscreen and sneakers (or other very comfortable shoes).
