COS Volunteers

Spartanburg International Festival 2019

IFest is a HUGE undertaking, and there’s only a handful of staff who plan and organize everything. So when the festival is actually here, we count on volunteers to help us actually pull off the event. We absolutely couldn't do it without you. We need all volunteers to commit to working at least one entire shift - most of which are 3 or 4 hours. And we hope you’ll do more than one, if possible. Volunteer times are available Friday, October 4 (for set up) & Saturday, October 5 for the festival. All total, we have about 250 shifts to be covered by volunteers!

Volunteer Rules & Regulations

By submitting an International Festival Volunteer Application, you agree to the following details and conditions:

• By signing up, the volunteer attests to being free of any felony convictions.

• We depend on the faithfulness of our volunteers to make IFest a fun & organized event for all who attend. Please help us make it that way by only volunteering if you can commit to fulfilling your assigned duties. We understand that occasionally some unforeseen circumstance may arise. Please let us know ASAP if you will be unable to fulfill your position to so we can try to find a replacement

• In order to be a volunteer, you must be 14 years or older.

• Please don't bring anyone to accompany you during your volunteer shift. (If you have a friend who wants to hang out with you, make sure they ALSO signed up as a volunteer. We need them!

• We do not accept walk-up volunteers - everyone must be registered in advance.

• Show up 15-20 minutes early to your shift. The area you’re serving in maybe a few minutes from volunteer check-in.

• Shifts listed are “approximate” times. A shift could possibly end a little earlier, and some a little later.

• All shifts are rain or shine. (We’re hoping “shine.”)

• Check in and out of each shift at Volunteer check-in Located in the Chapman Cultural Center Parking Lot.

• Complete all tasks given to you within your shift - and never leave your “station”
unattended. If an emergency should arrive, please let someone know.

• Come prepared - you might want to bring a hat & sunscreen.

• Absolutely no drinking alcohol while on volunteer duty. If your shift is over, and you decide to have a beer (for our volunteers who are 21 and over), please change out of your volunteer t-shirt.

• We make every attempt to keep volunteers where they want to be, but this is not always possible. Please be flexible.

• After receiving your form, the Volunteer Coordinator will notify you by email on where to park and where to report for your shift. Please check your email the week before the event. 

• Have fun while on duty! And keep a smile on your face!
