Volunteer at Taste of Yolo

Want a Free Ticket to Taste of Yolo?

Volunteer to work a few hours at festival and the rest of the day is yours to eat and drink your way through Yolo County!

As a member of Yolo Patrol, you could be doing anything, like helping set up the site, keeping a watchful eye on entry points, assisting the vendors with their booths, helping to keep the festival green, or even just greeting visitors with a smile and they come and go. It’s all about giving visitors a great experience while having loads of fun!

You’ll get a “Yolo Patrol” t-shirt that shows everyone you’re a valuable volunteer, as well as access to the festival when not working. Adults over 21 can taste beer and wine after their shift with a complimentary souvenir wine glass. All volunteers get chances to win cool prizes donated by our 70+ food and wine vendors.

The festival is June 10 from 3pm-8pm in Central Park, and there will also be set-up on Friday, June 9. Volunteers are required to be aged 14 or over.

If you are interested in being part of the fun email us at info@yolocvb.org
