Volunteers are needed for setting up the event, directing traffic, directing people inside the festival, handing out glasses, delivering ice, and clean up. Volunteer duties will be assigned at the festival at the "Volunteer Registration Desk" upon check in. All volunteers must be 21+.

All Saturday volunteers receive:

• A free T-shirt!

• A complimentary food ticket

•The opportunity to stay and enjoy the festival when their shift ends (Shifts 1 and 2 only)

Friday Shift runs from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on Friday and volunteers will be admitted to the general session on Saturday. Working this shift requires the volunteer to do some heavy lifting and unloading of delivery trucks. It is recommended for the "strongest" volunteers.

Saturday Shifts:

Shift #1 runs from 9:00am to 1:00pm and volunteers will be invited to stay and enjoy the remainder of the event for FREE beer sampling.

Shift #2 runs from 11:30am to 3:30pm and volunteers will be invited to stay and enjoy the remainder of the event for FREE beer sampling.

Shift #3 runs from 2:00pm to 6:00pm and volunteers will receive one complimentary General Admission ticket to their choice of upcoming 2020 Starfish events: Pour the Core:Long Island on 9/26/20 or Great Beer Expo:Nassau on 11/14/20. The volunteer must check out with a Starfish employee to receive their comp ticket. No exceptions.

Sometimes the best pictures and stories are caught by our volunteers and attendees at the festival. Therefore, we need some volunteer photographers to help us capture great festival moments. If you sign up to be a “volunteer photographer,” we ask that you arrive and stay throughout the day to photograph the event. We’re looking for photographers with a different view that will capture our attendees, volunteers, exhibitors, programs, products, etc. We ask that all photographers send us a DVD/CD of the photos they have taken within a week of the event taking place.

Street Team:
We need to spread the word about the LI Craft Classic at Heckscher State Park, and we need volunteers who are able to distribute promotional cards and posters about the festival in new neighborhoods. If you sign up to be a “Street Team” volunteer we will send you materials to distribute around your community – your local bars, restaurants, beer distributors, etc. (anywhere that people will see them). There is no time requirement and distribution activities can be completed whenever and wherever is convenient to you. However, “Street Team” volunteers can earn rewards for their efforts based on the number of locations materials are distributed at.

If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the form below, providing us with your name, email address, phone number and the shift you are interested in working. The Volunteer Administrator will confirm your shift and follow up with you as the event date draws near.
