Take a turn at Winefest

By Dave Buchanan
The good folks who bring us the Colorado Mountain Winefest are looking for some volunteers to fill various duties during this year's Winefest, Sept. 13-16. With at least 6,000 guests expected for the 16th annual celebration of Colorado's wine industry, there is plenty to do and lots of opportunity to have a hand in the state's largest and most-popular wine fest. It's not like you don't get anything for your time. The swag includes entry to the Festival in the Park ($40 value), free Winefest T-shirt and wineglass and a coupon for lunch. It won't pay for college but it will make your day a bit brighter. There's also a call out for volunteers during Peachfest, Aug. 17-18. Information on both opportunities is available by e-mail at or by calling 464-0111 or 800-704-3667. Information on the Colorado Mountain Winefest is available here
