5th Annual Tryon Beer Fest needs volunteers

Published 10:00 pm Wednesday, September 28, 2016

The Tryon Beer Fest Committee is planning and organizing the 5th Annual Tryon Beer Fest and as the November 5 festival date approaches, volunteers are needed.

“Volunteers are such an important part of the festival. They help with pouring beer, manning the admission gates, selling T-shirts, and any of the many other jobs it takes to run the festival,” said Della Pullara, chairperson for the Volunteer Subcommittee. “We’ve filled our early shift, but still have openings on the second shift, which runs from 2:45-6:15 p.m.”

Volunteers are admitted to the festival for free and can get a beer sampling ticket for just $10 (no drinking during your shift). They also get a limited edition T-shirt and admission to a volunteer party at a later date. If you are interested in being a volunteer, please visit www.tryonbeerfest.com and click on the Volunteer link.
