People, Our Most Valuable Asset

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 36th Annual Telluride Wine Festival! Volunteers are essential in creating a great experience for all Wine Festival goers and are truly the heartbeat of this event. As a volunteer, there are many great ways to interact with some of the most revered chefs, wine makers, sommeliers, restaurant owners and festival goers.

Your volunteer shift assignments will total approximately 12 hours within the 4 days of the Festival.

In exchange for donating these 12 hours of your time you will receive:

  • Either a Grand Tasting Ticket OR a Brunch Ticket (Please indicate your preference on the Volunteer Form)
  • A fabulous Telluride Wine Festival Apron
  • A Volunteer Welcome Party to remember! This party is a Mandatory meeting that you won’t want to miss. It will be held on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 and will start the Festival Weekend of with a bang….and plenty of beer. More details regarding location and time will be included in your final volunteer schedule information.
  • The opportunity to meet and mingle with like minded wine enthusiasts!

In addition, the Festival is seeking volunteers to hold special Manager Positions for each of the events on the schedule. Ideally these managers will have past experience with the Wine Festival and be willing to put in a few extra hours. You may indicate your willingness to participate on the Manager level on the Volunteer Form below) Additional compensation will be provided to Mangers (Think WINE!)
