Friends Of The Forest Fair Work Party
June  29 & 30, 2024  – 10:00am until the cows come home.

Prior to the Forest Fair, the Forest Fair Committee hosts a weekend work party to get the Girdwood Fairgrounds ready for the Fair. This includes setting up the music stages, the T-shirt Booth, the Information Booth, painting trash cans, and general clean up of the area. The Committee hosts a BBQ both evenings for all the volunteers who assist.

As always the Friends of the Forest Fair Work Party is the weekend before the Fair.

During the Fair –  July 5 ,6, 7

Vibe Patrol
Volunteers are needed to help orient pedestrians as they come into the fair and assist camp host and parking with maintaining organized flow within the park. These individuals are champions of keeping the vibe alive and making sure everyone stays safe and has a good time.

Camp Host
The campground host helps campers check in and monitors vendor vehicle access to the fair.  This is a chill and fun station at the edge of the fair with Girdwood community vibe and lots of smiles. Additional duties might include walking the camper area and assisting with location of miss-parked persons.

T-Shirt Booth
Volunteers are needed to work the t-shirt booth during Forest Fair hours. These individuals are responsible for selling Forest Fair t-shirts and other Forest Fair merchandise as well as cash handling.

Information Booth
The Information Booth needs a volunteer staff for both Saturday and Sunday of the Fair to direct traffic and answer questions.

Earth Maintenance
The Earth Maintenance crew keeps it clean while getting dirty!  They need volunteers to empty trash cans and recycling bins and generally keep things looking nice.

ID Checkers at the Biergarten (Age Discriminators)
The Age Discriminators keep beer in the Biergarten and underage drinkers out.  TAPS Cards are recommended.

After the Fair –  Monday, July 8th

Post Forest Fair Clean Up Party
After the last cob of corn is laid to rest in the trash, the final band had bid goodnight, and this years Girdwood Forest Fair is in the history books, the post clean up begins. Help is needed to return our fairgrounds to it’s normal state-of-being and all volunteers are asked to be there Monday after the fair at noon until the park is clean.  We are making a party of it!  There will be food and drinks to keep our awesome volunteers running!
