Join the fun! SWFL Veg Fest 2018 is seeking volunteers for all aspects of the fest, including set up and break down for the event, staffing the Veg Fest tables and welcome stations, and assisting speakers and food vendors. Our first year’s event had an amazing volunteer team, and we expect to see many smiling faces back next year – but we think there’s no such thing as too many volunteers!
