(Yes, We Need More!)
It is time to get into gear for the 2018 Grand Prix Festival of Watkins Glen! Our celebration just continues to grow and has become one of the premier events in the Southern Finger Lakes Region. Its growth and success is due in large part to our marvelous volunteers. To put things in perspective, although we now have a roster of over 150 volunteers, we are still looking for more -- that's what it takes to make the festival an outstanding event with a superb reputation for quality.
Although the date of this year's event is not until Friday, September 7th, we encourage you to sign up by June 15 as your early commitment greatly assists us in event planning. An online volunteer registration form for volunteers is currently available. The usual commemorative tee shirt, food coupon and other "goodies" will be provided for the $10.00 registration fee.
We have plenty of positions and opportunities still available -- some of the following are sure to be what you are looking for. Not sure which is right for you? Check the volunteer job descriptions for these positions.
