Asheville Downtown Association hosts some of this city’s largest outdoor events like the Downtown After 5 concert series, Ingles Independence Day Celebration, Easter on the Green, Oktoberfest, Asheville Holiday Parade and more — and they’re all volunteer powered! Roles include pouring beer, selling merch, selling beverages, checking in guests, greening, backstage security and more. Perks vary per shift, but generally include some or all of the following: t-shirt, beer tokens and credit toward a big end-of-year party with drinks, food and entertainment. ADA also hosts periodic volunteer socials to promote friendship among those that come out and help at events. ADA’s mission is to promote a thriving downtown, which is accomplished through advocacy and entertainment events. Email [email protected] for more information.
