Volunteer for the Bluemont Fair!
The Fair runs on volunteer help!
Working the Fair is a great place to meet your neighbors, give back to your community, and (if you are a high school student who lives in Bluemont) gain eligibility for a Bluemont scholarship. Shifts run from 2 to 4 hours, depending on the job and location. All Fair volunteers get into the Fair for free, and also get a discount on the popular Bluemont Fair t-shirts.
Please contact the Fair Chair listed below for the area where you would like to help. If you are happy to help anywhere there is a need, please contact the Fair Chairs at chair [@] bluemontfair.org. Let us know your available windows, and any restrictions you have, and we will help you find a spot that can use you!
Admissions Gate: We need people to take money from attendees as they arrive at the Fair, put on wristbands, and distribute schedules. These shifts are great opportunities for families or groups of people who want to work together. If you are interested in helping in this area, please contact John Constant at john [@] atokaproperties.com.
Art Show & Sale: We need help receiving and hanging art on Thursday evening before the Fair as well as people to take money from customers buying art during the fair. We also need help taking down art and disassembling the art panels immediately after the fair on Sunday. Please sign up for a shift here: Art Show Volunteer Signup and contact Jordan Edwards at bluemontfairartsale @ gmail.com with any questions.
Beer & Wine Garden: Adults are needed to sell beverage tickets and monitor the Beer & Wine Garden. Please contact John Sullivan at jksully [@] hotmail.com.
Caboose Minder: We need someone who is willing to sit in the caboose and allow visitors to come in and explore. Interest in the history of trains in our area is a bonus, but not required. Please contact Jen Stone at jenclark [@] stonefrog.com.
Children’s Fair: We need older children and teenagers who like to work with younger kids, playing games and running craft tables. Those with an artistic bent are needed to paint faces. And someone has to blow up (with a helium tank) and distribute all those balloons! Please contact Sheri Conrad at sheri.conrad [@] loudoun.gov.
E.E. Lake Store: We need people to work the cash registers and sell t-shirts and baked goods inside the Lake Store. Please contact Lauren Stevens at lstevens373 [@] gmail.com.
Gardener’s Shed: In the week before the Fair, we need help getting this Shed tidied up for its annual appearance as a retail spot for gardening enthusiasts. Over the weekend we need help at the cash register. Please contact Anna Billman at small.anna [@] gmail.com.
Gator Driver: We need a responsible adult who knows the village and is willing to use the gator (provided) to drive Fair patrons where needed (typically to and from the parking lot), or run other errands if necessary. Please contact Cynthia Morris or Jen Stone at chair [@] bluemontfair.org.
Plaster Museum of Bluemont’s Heritage: Bluemont’s new museum in the E.E. Lake Store needs volunteers to monitor the displays and answer questions about Bluemont. We will also need this help on certain weekends throughout the year. Please contact Peter Weeks at bluemontvillage [@] aol.com.
Poetry Table: We need someone who is willing to sit at the table and encourage children to write poetry. Please contact Lori Seeley at lseeley.bluemont [@] pcarch.com.
Put up Posters: We always need people to put up the Fair posters far and wide! If you are willing to put some up in the local villages, or even in places like Reston or Winchester, please contact us! Talk to Cynthia Morris or Jen Stone at chair [@] bluemontfair.org.
Snickersville Academy: We need people to welcome visitors in this quiet, shady spot to distribute giveaways and encourage children to build a provided craft. Please contact Emily Weitz at emilyrweitz [@] gmail.com.
Trash Pick-up and Table/Chair Tear-Down after the Fair: This important job needs several people, or one or more families, who are willing to be here Sunday evening at 5 pm to help us collapse chairs and pick up trash throughout the village. Please contact Cynthia Morris or Jen Stone at chair [@] bluemontfair.org.
