Guidelines for Tucson Folk Festival and TKMA Volunteers
Thank you for volunteering for a TKMA event! As the public face of the Festival and the Association, volunteers are asked to abide by the following guidelines whenever actively volunteering at any event associated with TKMA. We might be greeting people, promoting the Folk Festival, and/or handling money during our work shifts. We want your volunteer commitment with TKMA to be a fun and enjoyable experience, yet it is very important that these volunteer positions are accomplished with an attention to detail and a professional demeanor.
Listed below are TKMA Volunteer Guidelines:
- Please leave your pets at home while working in a TKMA volunteer position.
- Please refrain from consumption of alcoholic beverages during your shift.
- Please keep TKMA tables and areas clean and neat and free of personal items, especially food and drinks.
- When selling raffle tickets at areas outside the Raffle Booth, please use provided money belt and green volunteer vest.
FESTIVAL VOLUNTEER CHECK-IN & ONSITE AMENITIES
- When checking in at the beginning of your shift, check-in at the central VOLUNTEER BOOTH, and let your designated staff member know you have arrived and await instructions. Review your complete volunteer job description and duties and clarify with staff any additional volunteer assignments that may be given onsite.
- In the event that you are running late or are sick and can’t make your shift please be sure to contact the volunteer coordinator.
- Please check in at the Volunteer Tent located in the center of the event 30 minutes before your scheduled shift starts. The Volunteer Tent will be located on Jacome Plaza just west of the Joel Valdez Library at 101 N Stone Avenue.
- Every volunteer will receive a festival volunteer shirt. When you check in for your first shift, you can pick up your shirt and desired size.
- After you check in at the tent, you will be directed to your final volunteer assignment, and have some time to go over any questions you might have prior to the event with a staff liaison on the tent.
- Volunteer water and snacks will be made available throughout the weekend. If you need a break or shaded tent to sit in, head to the volunteer tent. During designated breaks, you can also utilize the space to come in and sit and eat food that you may purchase from onsite food vendors.
- First Aid will be available for volunteers within the volunteer tent.
