WANT TO WORK AT PIG & WHISKEY?
Thank you for your interest in joining us at the 9th annual Pig & Whiskey and/or the 11th annual DIY Street Fair!
WHAT TO EXPECT
WHAT IS PIG & WHISKEY & DIY STREET FAIR?
2018 marks EIGHT glorious years of Pig & Whiskey and ELEVEN creative years of DIY STREET FAIR. Year after year, these events gets kicked up a notch. Both Pig & Whiskey and DIY are FREE ENTRY festivals featuring vendors, dozens of live bands from local and national platforms, 15+ unique restaurants/pop-ups/food trucks, over 50 top notch craft beers, an incredible variety of spirits and an array of great artists.
In 2017 we had over 190,000 festival-goers at Pig & Whiskey and DIY. We are expecting even more this year.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
While we take over two large parking lots, Troy Street, and Nine Mile Road, we basically construct and maintain a small city within the event footprint. Barricades get put up around the entire perimeter, tents get put up, tables get placed, kegs get moved, soft drinks get moved, ice gets distributed, recycling bins must go up, food trucks come in, vendors get set up, and the list continues on and on. With over 80,000 festival-goers, we rely on good, quality people to help build, maintain, and tear down the events through the weekend. Event Workers are essential to make Pig & Whiskey and DIY possible.
WHAT DO WE WEAR?
- No large logos or attire with statements.
- Work gloves.
- Comfortable closed toed shoes.
- Be prepared for appropriate Summer/Fall weather.
- Purses and other valuable items should be stored in a secured area.
