The event is held at the at the Frederick Fairgrounds located at 797 East Patrick Street, Frederick, MD. Arrive at the Volunteer Check In desk at least 15 minutes prior to your assigned shift. You will need time to park, locate the Volunteer Check In desk, get your T-shirt and get to your assigned area. Don’t forget to allow time for traffic in the area. If you plan to eat prior to your shift allow plenty of time- we expect to be very busy. There will be access to a limited food menu in our Volunteer Support area.
A FEW RULES
You must wear your cool volunteer T-shirt and name badge while you’re volunteering. By law, you may not drink alcohol while wearing your T-shirt and volunteering. We will have a private area for you to change your shirt or you can use one of the restrooms.
A FEW DETAILS
Parking for volunteers is the same as patrons of the event. Enter through gate 6 on Patrick Street. The Volunteer Check In tent will be located just outside of Building 8. If you are familiar with the complex, Building 8 is at the west end of the Grandstand, which is the tallest building in the middle of the Fairgrounds. If you have trouble finding the Check In area, ask anyone wearing a volunteer shirt.
