Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Telluride Wine Festival.
Without the efforts of volunteers, this festival wouldn’t survive. In advance, we thank you for your past contributions and look forward to working with you on this year’s event.
Please complete the application form if you are interested in becoming a Telluride Wine Festival volunteer or captain. Once you complete the form, click the Send Application button at the bottom. All captains and volunteers must submit an application.
If you are accepted as a volunteer, you will be assigned to work an event or the box office. In exchange for your volunteer work, you will receive a ticket to either the Grand Tasting, The Toast of Telluride or Celebrate Colorado.
If you are accepted as a Captain you will receive wine bucks with a value of $75 per event that you captain plus one ticket to either The Grand Tasting, Toast of Telluride or Celebrate Colorado. You can use your wine bucks to purchase a ticket to any event. Unused wine bucks are non refundable.
A deposit of $75 is required. This deposit is equal to the full cost of a ticket to the Grand Tasting event, which is one of the events you can choose to attend as an accepted volunteer. This deposit allows us to charge you for that ticket if you fail to satisfactorily complete your scheduled shifts (refer to the ‘I Agree’ section on the volunteer application for the complete listing of circumstances that would require us to retain your deposit). We accept personal checks or debit/credit cards for deposits. Please note that we do not deposit your check or charge your debit or credit card unless you are assigned as a volunteer and you fail to satisfactorily complete your scheduled shifts. The application process alone does not validate or jeopardize your deposit. You will be contacted after you have been accepted as a volunteer, for your deposit.
Please see the Schedule of Events to see the list of events available to volunteer.
