Do You Want to Volunteer at This Year’s Festival?

The Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival would not be possible without the support of hundreds of community volunteers. Here are some of the ways you can volunteer at the Festival.

Festival Set-Up – This always happens on the Sunday before the Festival, which will be April 30th this year, and includes a pot luck lunch. This is mostly manual labor, like setting up sheep pens.

During the Festival – Sometimes we need a helping hand to just carry something or pitch in where needed. We need volunteers on Saturday and Sunday during Festival hours. THERE IS A CRITICAL NEED FOR VOLUNTEERS ON SUNDAY.

Sunday Night Tear Down – Time to put the Festival back in the box for another year! Young and/or strong arms are especially needed here to help take down the sheep pens.

Anyone who volunteers gets a free volunteer shirt, a unique souvenir which is NOT available to the general public!

If you are a High School Student who needs Student Service Learning  hours, we can certify them.

Visit our SignUpGenius page after March 1st to sign up for the tasks and time slots that work best for you.

Please note: You MUST sign up before the festival. We need to know who is coming and when. If you want SSL hours certified, we need to know that, too.

Thank you for helping!


Our Recycling Committee Needs You!

Volunteers are also desperately needed to help our recycling efforts. This is not a glamorous job, as it involves picking out the recyclables that were tossed in with the regular trash. However, it comes with a high satisfaction rating for knowing you have helped the Festival and the planet. By being vigilant with recycling, in past years we have been able to reduce the number of dumpster loads of trash from five down to three! This might be a solution for keeping a spouse or teenager occupied while you shop. Visit our SignUpGenius page after March 1st to sign up for the time slot that works best for you, or stop by the information tent and we will hook you up. Everyone can help out by making sure to use the labeled recycle bins for recyclable materials!
