I need a few hundred volunteers for a fun food festival!  If you are in the Atlanta area, please read on:

After successfully serving up the city’s best fare for more than a decade, Taste of Atlanta is back with bigger features and bolder flavors in its 14th year! The legendary three-day food festival returns to Midtown at Tech Square Friday, September 25 – Sunday, September 27, 2015.

This year’s event takes festival-goers on a culinary adventure through the city’s many diverse neighborhoods by featuring the chefs and restaurants that give these communities their true personality and flavor. Food lovers of all ages are invited to join Taste of Atlanta this September in celebrating the dynamic energy and variety of the local restaurant scene while savoring what makes Atlanta the food capital of the South!

All new for 2015, Taste of Atlanta is launching a cashless payment system with new state of the art RFID technology that will make it easier and faster for attendees to enter the festival and make purchases-all with just the tap of a wristband! This means no more printed tickets, Taste Coupons or cash needed.

The 14th annual Taste of Atlanta returns to Tech Square in Midtown at Spring and 5th Street with over 80 confirmed restaurants and some of the best Chefs on Saturday, September 26 and Sunday, September 27.  Volunteers are the key to making this event a success. We are seeking qualified and enthusiastic volunteers to serve as Ambassadors for Taste of Atlanta 2015.

Ambassador opportunities include: Restaurant Runners, Ticketing, and Floaters to name a few. Ambassadors are needed on Saturday, September 26 and Sunday, September 27 (4 hour shifts).

Each Ambassador should be able to commit to a four-hour shift and review of our online Volunteer Manual. Taste of Atlanta is an excellent opportunity to meet people from Atlanta as well as from around the world!

Ambassador Rewards:

All Ambassadors will receive the following after completing a minimum of one four hour shift:

  • One (1) General Admission wristband loaded with 10 Taste Points
  • Taste of Atlanta Ambassador T Shirt
  • Thank you letter

Ambassador Shifts & Assignments

Ambassador duties will be assigned once you check in for your shift. You will be assigned based on the duty and area that needs Ambassadors at that time. You will not receive an assignment before Taste of Atlanta, just a confirmation for the shift time you selected.

Taste of Atlanta is an outdoor food festival – please be aware that there will be lots of standing and in some cases walking around the festival for most of the assignments.

The Ambassador Assignments will include:

  • Restaurant Runners
  • Floaters
  • Ticketing
  • Chef’s Assistants (Culinary Students Only)
  • Information Booth, Check In and Chef’s Hospitality

During your shift, Ambassadors may be asked to change assignments and/or locations. We ask that you remain flexible and patient!
