The Bethesda Urban Partnership puts on the Taste of Bethesda with the help of 100 volunteers, and a few weeks before this year’s event it’s still in need of some folks to help out.
There are five teams — set-up, ticket booth, drink tent, roving and parking — that work in shifts throughout the day. Set-up for the Taste starts at 7 a.m. by placing tablecloths, hanging signs and helping restaurants gear up.
The event last year brought between 38,000 and 40,000 people to Norfolk, Fairmont, St Elmo, Cordell and Del Ray Avenues.
Set-up and afternoon slots in all areas are in need of the most assistance. The afternoon shifts go from 1:30 p.m.-4 p.m.
Volunteers must be at least 16, and volunteers younger than 18 require a permission form. Each team will have a captain to lead the way. For more information, visit the BUP site.
