Wine Festival - A Taste of New Kent, New Kent Virginia - May 13, 2017

2017 Event Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Taste of New Kent Wine Festival on May 13, 2017. A festival of this size, which brings several thousand folks to our county, takes close to 100 onsite volunteers to keep it operating smoothly.

As a volunteer, you will receive FREE admission (a $35 savings!), a wine glass, and a volunteer t-shirt. Several shifts are available, allowing you to enjoy the festival when you are "off duty." In addition, the first shift will receive coffee and doughnuts, the second and third shifts a bag lunch, and all shifts free water and snacks.

All volunteers will be asked to attend a meeting at the Winery, on May 11, 2017. This meeting is where we will distribute your event tickets, shirts, wrist bands and do any training that may be necessary.

If you are interested in volunteering but have some questions, please contact Lee Ailstock at
