Donate Time to the WGBY Asparagus Festival

Hadley Town Common
Rte. 9 (Russell Street), Hadley MA

There's nothing more "local" than the folks who make up our community. Help your local PBS station host the community event of the season by volunteering at the WGBY Asparagus Festival, which celebrates "All Things Local & Agricultural" with Curious George, PBS Kids games, a farmers/makers market, food/beer vendors, and live music all day.

Help Set Up on Friday, May 31

If you have some time between 12 noon and 6 p.m., WGBY would greatly appreciate your helpful hands. Many tasks are completed the day before the event, including mapping, transporting, moving things, signage, and more. If available, use the form below to sign up or contact WGBY Director of Community Relations and Events Marie Warchter at mwaechter@wgby.org.

Work the Actual Event

The WGBY Asparagus Festival attracts over 5,000 members of the greater Pioneer Valley community -- and that takes an army of volunteers to do everything from gate admissions and beer sales to trash/recycling duty and farmers/makers market support. Our family fun and entertainment is all offered to the community because of the work of our volunteers!

Have some time to offer? Use the form below to sign up. Choose the shift that works for you -- or choose multiple shifts. For those volunteering two shifts at the WGBY Asparagus Festival, the station will provide lunch. (And all volunteers of the WGBY Chef Spearit Lunch will enjoy the asparagus-themed entree).

Volunteering can be fun -- even more fun with a friend; so, go ahead and recruit a buddy! Thank you for supporting public media.

QUESTIONS? Send an email to Marie Waechter at mwaechter@wgby.org.
