The Libations committee is responsible for organizing and operating all alcoholic beverage sales at ComFest.
Libations is always looking for trustworthy, sober volunteers to check IDs, take beverage chips, and serve drinks. There are training sessions for Libations volunteers before the festival each year, where you will learn the most up-to-date law changes and practices that help to keep us and ComFest safe and legal.
This is a job for trustworthy folks who understand that The Community Festival has survived, in no small part, through its beverage sales. This has allowed us to stay true to our Statement of Principle and to remain free of corporate sponsorship for all these years. (and into the future)
As a cashier, you check IDs and exchange money for beverage chips and souvenir mugs. As a bartender, you check IDs, take the beverage chips, and serve the drinks. You understand that any free drinks and mugs you give away come out of ComFest’s pocket, and that although the festival looks huge, it is weather dependent and can struggle to break even.
Please understand that if alcohol is furnished to a minor or if any other liquor law is broken, both you and ComFest could be issued citations. So now you can take the ComFest oath: “I Love Community Festival and I want it to be here for my kids and grandkids, (or “my neighbor’s kids and grandkids,” if you don’t have any). I won’t furnish beer to a minor or commit some other liquor violation and I won’t give away any alcohol!” Okay, so there’s no official ComFest oath, but you get the point. Who wants to be known as the person who ended the festival by costing us our liquor permit?
So if you think you can handle 4 or 5 hours of checking ID’s and helping the festival pay for itself, please sign up for a shift and come have fun with us.
