Garden of Quilts Volunteer Applications

Garden of Quilts Volunteer Interest Application

 

 

Hello! Thank you for your interest in becoming a Thanksgiving Point volunteer for our Garden of Quilts show this September. Events such as these are huge undertaking and we could not produce them nearly so well without the invaluable support of our volunteers.

By the time the exhibition is over our generous volunteers will have logged several hundred hours of service. We have opportunities available before the show, during, and after and numerous different types of positions ensuring that those interested can find something that fits their talents and interests.

As mentioned, volunteer needs for the Garden of Quilts extend beyond just working during the festival. Some needs before the event include quilt check-in, inventory, and preparation of signage, quilt hanging.

During the event: Positions include parcel and sewing machine check station and machine rental desk, wayfinders, "white-glove" quilt handlers, greeters, exit gate security checkers, class hosts and registration, charity and "green room" tent hosts, weather emergency teams, and more. Shift availability:  8:30-12, 11:30-2, 2:30-6, 5:30-8:30

After the event we will need help with various tasks including quilt check out and return.

Volunteers working the Garden of Quilts will be provided the following incentives:

  • Working volunteers will receive a 25% discount on food and drink at Thanksgiving Point concession venues.
  • For single shift sign up: the volunteer can stay at the event after the shift or come before the shift if they are working an afternoon or evening shift to see quilts and participate in the event. 
  • For 2 or more shifts worked the volunteer will receive a drink mug that they can refill for $1 and a grounds ticket for another day’s entrance to the Garden of Quilts or a regular Gardens pass. 
  • For signing up for 4 or more shifts, volunteers can receive either additional grounds tickets for another day’s entrance to the Garden of Quilts, regular garden passes, Thanksgiving Point Explorer Passes or Luminaria passes (1 pass for each shift worked after their first shift).
