Vendor Load-in Lead
Our Vendor Load-In Leads play a critical role in the festival. We have about 3 hours in which to help almost 200 vendors, exhibitors, and sponsors unload their cars and set up their tents. Each vendor load-in lead is assigned a crew of 4 volunteers. Their role is to help arriving vendors to unload their cars and move their gear into place. They also help to deliver rented tents, tables, chairs, and weights to assigned spots and to set up the tents. The role of the Load-In lead is to greet incoming vendors and to assign them to a crew.
This role requires excellent customer skills and grace under pressure. Everyone wants service - now. Everyone wants you to bend the rules for them. You've got cars blocking traffic and a parade coming through. Just remember: you are essential to this festival.
Time Commitment: Mostly festival day - from 7:15 am to 11:30 am. We ask the leads to attend 1-2 virtual meetings ahead of time and to review their load-in sheets ahead of the events.Start/End Date09/12/2021 to 09/25/2021
