A Toast to Teamwork: Volunteer at the Michiana Wine Festival

As spring blossoms in Fort Wayne, so does the anticipation for the 2024 Michiana Wine Festival, a celebration that swirls together community, fun, and the finest wines Indiana has to offer. Behind the scenes, a dedicated crew of volunteers is essential to uncorking the festival’s success. This year, we’re calling on more than 60 people to to lend a hand and volunteer at the Michiana Wine Festival  – we promise it’s one pour decision you won’t regret!

Volunteers are the backbone of the festival, ensuring every attendee’s experience is smooth and enjoyable. From guiding guests through the gates and checking IDs to make sure everyone is legal age to partake, to managing the flow of wine purchases in the VIP tent and helping serve Very VIPs in the outdoor lounge, volunteers are really the people who make the magic happen. Whether you’re a fan of the frontline action, like ticket scanning and ID checking, or prefer to support behind the scenes in the wine pickup tent or merchandise booths, there’s a role that fits your taste.

Volunteering isn’t just about giving your time; it’s about the rewarding experiences you gain, too. Not only do volunteers receive a FREE ticket to the festival, allowing them to explore the event after their shift, but they also have the chance to meet new friends, learn about the Indiana wine scene, and contribute to creating an unforgettable event.

Are you ready to blend fun, friendship, and philanthropy? The 2024 Michiana Wine Festival is calling for volunteers to help make this year’s event a vintage year. This is your chance to be part of Fort Wayne’s first toast of the season at Headwaters Park.

For those interested in volunteering, sign up now to make new friends, enjoy great wine, and help make the Michiana Wine Festival an event to remember.
