Come volunteer with a friend! Volunteers make the event the success it is by assisting us in delivering a great experience from the time guests walk in to the time they walk out. Thank you in advance for considering offering a helping hand!

Benefits of Being a Volunteer:
All volunteers receive a free festival t-shirt and access to the event.

• Friday volunteers assist with pre-event set-up from 1pm-5pm and receive a ticket to attend the Coffee & Tea Festival either day at the end of their shift

• Shift 1 (Saturday; 9am-2pm), Shift 2 (Saturday; 11am-4pm), and Shift 4 (Sunday; 9am-2pm) volunteers assist with registration, exhibitor services, coat check, seminars, and other responsibilities during the event, and are given access to the festival

• Shift 3 (Saturday; 1pm-6pm) volunteers help us to wrap up the day and prepare for the next day of the event, and will receive a ticket to the Coffee & Tea Festival on Sunday (10/25)

• Shift 5 (Sunday, 11am-4pm) and Shift 6 (Sunday; 1:00pm-6:00pm) volunteers help us with registration, to close-up the event and move exhibitors out; and will receive a ticket to a future Starfish Junction produced event

Street Team:
We need to spread the word about the Coffee & Tea Festival: Philly and need volunteers who are able to distribute promotional cards and posters about the festival in neighborhoods surrounding the event. If you sign up to be a “Street Team” volunteer we will send you materials to distribute around your community – your workplace, cafes, churches, libraries, restaurants, convenience stores, etc. (anywhere that people will see them). There is no time requirement and distribution activities can be completed whenever and wherever is convenient to you. However, “Street Team” volunteers earn tickets to the event for their efforts based on the number of locations materials are distributed at. Please note we focus street team efforts to a 25 mile radius from the venue.

Sometimes the best pictures and stories are caught by our volunteers and attendees at the festival. Therefore, we need some volunteer photographers to help us capture great festival moments. If you sign up to be a “volunteer photographer,” we ask that you arrive and stay throughout the day to photograph the event. We’re looking for photographers with a different view that will capture our attendees, volunteers, exhibitors, programs, products, etc. Photographers are required to use a DSLR camera or similar since we need hi-resolution photos that are editable (no phone photography please). We also ask that all photographers send us a link to the photos via Dropbox (or similar service) within a week of the event taking place for posting to our website and social media pages. Volunteer photographers will receive access to the event during their time taking photos. We will also provide a pair of tickets to a future Starfish Junction event upon receiving the photos.

Pick the shift that works best for you!
