Volunteer Info

Terrapin Station Winery participates in many Wine Festivals and special events throughout the year. We welcome all those aged 21 or older interested in helping us create the best festival experience possible. If you are energetic, love wine – or want to learn a little more about wine – and are willing to provide 4 hours of your time during the festival weekend, we want to hear from you!

Friends, family groups, teams are welcome to sign up, but state law requires anyone pouring wine to be at least 21 years of age.

Visit our Wine Festivals events page to to sign up to volunteer at a festival.

Volunteer Guide

Before the Festival

Our Volunteer Coordinator will confirm your shift and send a Volunteer Guide with specific festival information, maps, and parking information. You may also download our general Volunteer Guide. Please review and read these in advance. We will have information regarding the Winery and Wine Details, so you don't have to memorize it, but it helps to have an overview ahead of time. Also, it may be helpful to print out the Maps, parking information, and contact phone numbers.

The Day of The Festival

Please plan to arrive at the tent at least 15 minutes prior to your shift time and work the entire shift. You should also be prepared to stand on your feet the entire time - i.e., wear comfortable shoes. Please allow time for parking and to check in at the Volunteer Booth (bonus: most festivals provide a separate entrance for Volunteers).

Working volunteers receive free admission to the festival for one day.
