Volunteers at the Middleburg Barn Equestrian Festival receive great benefits and help us produce the event. To become a volunteer, please follow the link below to complete the signup form; you will be contacted by an event representative within 1 to 2 business days.
Volunteer opportunities include serving at the Starting Gate (admission tent), as a beverage pourer for a winery or brewery, working in one of our program areas, or helping with the physical side of event operations. Once we’ve heard from you, we’ll work with you for the right role and schedule for you.
First shift volunteers, working from 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., will receive a complimentary tasting glass and taste card for use during the second half of the event. Second half volunteers, working from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., receive a complimentary admission ticket to the Festival After Party (beginning at 6 p.m.). Volunteers who work both shifts will receive two tickets to the After Party, which includes a concert performance, and complimentary buffet and winetasting for those volunteers over the age of 21.
