• Artist Transportation: Most artists will provide their own transportation into town but we may need a reliable crew of drivers to move Musicians between accommodation and potential Airport Pick Ups. Our Passenger van will be provided so a clean driver license is a must.
• At Large: These are flexible volunteers who are willing to be placed where the need is the greatest. These volunteers will fill time periods or areas that may otherwise go understaffed.
• Beverage Servers: These Volunteers vary as do the “Watering Holes.” We will have a variety of bars dispensing varying beverages. Some will simply dispense domestic draft and aluminum bottled beers, so bar tending skills required are nominal. The next level will be craft and imported beers from around the world whereby some limited experience would be preferred. Irish Coffee is quite specialized with Whiskey and Bailey’s and experience would be a must and lastly our Hard Liquor and Wine selection is an area for experienced bartenders. Volunteers must be 21 to dispense alcohol at PaddyFest. All bars require early volunteers to ensure Beverage Set-Up for that day of service.
