Would you consider being a Bunbury volunteer? | Arts & Culture
CINCINNATI (FOX19) – The Bunbury Music Festival is looking for volunteers for the event, July 13-15, to be held along Cincinnati’s riverfront.
“We’re looking for volunteers for each day, and for many jobs,” said Bill Donabedian, festival organizer. “From helping greet attendees to selling items, we’re looking for volunteers who can do a little bit of everything.”
The on-line application for volunteer positions is now available at http://bunburyfestival.com/participate/volunteers. The deadline to apply is Thursday, May 31 at 5 p.m., and notifications of your acceptance will be sent starting Monday, June 4. Roles include lead volunteers, beverage sales, box office, greeters, information and volunteer headquarters.
There is no salary, but volunteers get into the festival for free on work days, receive a free t-shirt and $5 in food vouchers. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and a resident of Greater Cincinnati and arrive 30 minutes prior to the shift, when volunteers will be asked to sign a waiver and go through a brief orientation.
Founded by veteran music and event promoter Bill Donabedian, Bunbury Music Festival will feature 100 live performances on six stages throughout Sawyer Point and Yeatman’s Cove from July 13-15, 2012. The name of the event comes from an Oscar Wilde play, “The Importance of Being Ernest” and means "to have a made up excuse to get out of doing something boring.” For more information, visit www.bunburyfestival.com.
