Volunteer Duties: Beverage Garden

Troy, Ev, and Jess are the Beverage Garden Managers

  1. Ticket sales will stop at 10 p.m. each night with last call at 10:30 p.m.
  2. Ensure all beverage garden customers are of legal age (19+ yrs) to consume alcohol. Our liquor license requires that anyone that looks <25 yrs of age must present 2 pieces of i.d. to prove age of majority.
  3. The beverage ticket tent takes both cash or debit/credit.
  4. Smoking will not be permitted in the beverage garden. There is a designated smoking area located behind the beverage garden.
  5. Drink tickets may not be sold to anyone under the age of 19 nor to any patron that is visibly intoxicated.
  6. On that note same goes for alcohol. Even if they still have tickets we CANNOT serve alcohol to a patron that is intoxicated (as per your Serving It Right Training). If a patron is not cooperating with being cut off, please get a beverage garden Manager or the professional security on site to assist.
  7. We will not refund any unused drink tickets.
  8. Beverage garden patrons will be managed by security at the main entrance. If you notice a security “issue” or someone should be removed from the beverage garden, please advise the professional security or a Wapiti festival supervisor. Do not try to deal with security issues (fights etc.) yourself.
  9. During slower periods/as able 1 person from the cider and/or wine table is expected to clean the beverage garden, change garbage etc. Beverage Volunteers, you may also be asked to get ice. Volunteers working the last shift are expected to assist with clean-up and tear-down each night.
  10. Never leave the cash box or alcohol unattended or within reach of patrons.
  11. Use the radio (located at beverage tickets) to contact one of the beverage tent supervisors or your Volunteer Coordinators if there are questions. Float/change questions can be directed to the Money Manager.
  12. Alcohol (beer, wine, cider) must be poured according to the guidelines specified by the beverage garden managers or another festival coordinator. Over-pouring or failing to collect money or the appropriate ticket for a beverage may result in your removal from your position and the festival.
