    The Scottsdale League for the Arts invites you to volunteer for the Scottsdale Culinary Festival on April 13 & 14, 2019.

    Our signature event, the Scottsdale Culinary Festival weekend, provides memorable opportunities for volunteering and being a part of Arizona’s tastiest fundraiser. Our charitable success depends on 300 dedicated community volunteers to staff more than 40 positions on the Festival grounds. Proceeds benefit  deserving organizations that make a positive impact in the community through the arts. Volunteering for the Festival is a great way to contribute to the arts as you host a great party.

    All volunteers must attend our Volunteer Rally to register, participate in an orientation session and pick up volunteer materials.

    If you are interested in volunteering, please read the volunteer descriptions below and come back next month to complete our short volunteer registration form. (SCF volunteer registration window will open in January, 2019)


    Reserved parking near the Volunteer Registration Tent.


    All volunteers, new and experienced, are required to attend our Volunteer Rally to register, talk with our team, pick up volunteer gear, check out mock-ups of your work positions, meet fellow volunteers and win fabulous prizes every half hour.


    Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts Volunteer Tent
    7380 E 2nd St
    Scottsdale, AZ 85251

    Please allow approximately 30 minutes to complete the registration and orientation process.



    Be the first to greet Festival guests. Volunteers need a friendly attitude and the ability to work on their feet to collect admission fees, take tickets, answer questions, make guests feel welcome and thank them for attending. Gates can get busy, so extroverts and multi-taskers fit nicely in this position.


    The Festival features a Local Lounge of locally-made eats and spirits, a craft Beer Garden, and Family Zone which all offer fun positions to help out with that can match your interests and abilities.


    Six to eight volunteers are needed to staff each of our beverage booths. Volunteers will sell beer, wine, soft drinks and water to thirsty guests. Volunteers must be at least 19 years old and check 21-wristbands before serving alcoholic beverages to guests. Each booth will contain a paid staff bartender who serves as booth manager. Volunteers must be energetic, people-oriented and be able to work on their feet for an entire shift.
