Eat, drink, be merry: Scottsdale Culinary Festival looking for volunteers

PHOENIX — Are you willing to work for food? Then the Scottsdale Culinary Festival wants you!

The festival is looking for approximately 500 volunteers to donate their time during the 36th Annual Scottsdale Culinary Festival’s Great Arizona Picnic on April 12 and 13.

Volunteers will get a free t-shirt, but that’s not the only perk.

“We will give you food tickets that day while you’re volunteering, so that you don’t have to stand there starving and looking at all the great venues available to taste,” said Jerry McMahon, president of the Scottsdale League for the Arts.

Volunteers must attend orientation on March 29, between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., where they will register, meet people and win prizes.

Volunteers must also submit an application online before attending the rally. Find the application at
