Get Involved - Become a Volunteer!
The Southington Apple Harvest Festival is run primarily by volunteers like you! Each year we recruit approximately 200 people to volunteer a few hours of their time over the 6 days of the festival. Volunteers receive a commemorative t-shirt as a thank you for their time.
BEVERAGE SALES: Volunteers in these booths will keep our festival visitors hydrated by selling bottled beverages.
CARNIVAL TICKET SALES: Volunteers will work in the carnival ticket booths selling ride tickets.
INFORMATION BOOTH: Volunteers will provide patrons with brochures, maps, and general festival knowledge.
BEVERAGE RUNNERS: These volunteers will be in charge of keeping our beverage booths fully stocked. Must be able to lift 25 lbs. and complete repeat motions including bending.
