Boulder Creek Festival – Developing Hands Beer Tent

Beer Tent Info

Developing Hands Beer Garden Volunteers,

Thank you so much for your help with our grass-roots mission to build a school for the children in Nepal!  We can not express enough appreciation to each of you for your help!  Our goal is to make $20,000 for the kids at the beer tent this year!!   WE ARE REALLY COUNTING ON YOUR HELP—RAIN OR SHINE!  Without your help we simply would not be able to do it!

PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SHIFT TIME.  You can check it at our signup website:
Sign up for Beer Tent: May 28th – May 30th, 2016

If you are not familiar with our organization please take a moment to look at our website and familiarize yourself with Developing Hands.


Serving Beer:  Our role is serving beer, wine, and margaritas to the public after we have checked ID.  We collect the money, ask for donations, and talk about our mission to build a school in Nepal.  And, of course, have fun!!


Public parking lots & garages can be found at the following locations:

• 1100 Walnut

• 1400 Walnut (by the RTD bus station)

• 1500 Pearl Street

• 11th Street & Spruce (behind the Boulder Book Store)

There is free street parking in local neighborhoods on weekends, but please take note of street signs for possible exceptions. Because of limited downtown parking, we strongly suggest using alternate modes of transportation to get downtown, such as carpooling, walking, riding your bike, or taking the bus to the Festival.


We are required to have a minimum of 12 volunteers at the tent at all times.  If we don’t, they will shut us down and stop serving alcohol.  It is really important that everyone is there at the time they are scheduled.  Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your shift starts.  PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THERE IS GOING TO BE A LOT OF TRAFFIC!


That’s right, free beer!  While you are working at the beer tent you will have access to the volunteer’s beer keg.  We want everyone to have fun, so you are welcome to drink some beer while you are there.  Other options will be available for purchase.  We can only allow volunteers to drink from the designated keg.

If you get too drunk the city officials will ask you to leave.


We will be doing a brief training with each volunteer so that you will know what the city officials will be watching for and how everything works.  This is very important and mandatory before you begin your shift.


Things to consider: SPF, warm & cooler clothes, rain gear, a fun attitude!  Things provided: water, chairs, beer, training, and support from the BCF organizers.


All of the volunteers are required to wear a shirt that clearly indicates that you are a volunteer.  So, we are providing all volunteers with a free t-shirt that you get to keep as a small token of appreciation for your help.  If you want to wear your shirt from a previous year that is great!


We are located just east of the Boulder Public Library on Arapahoe between 9th Street and Broadway (Across from Alfalfas).  We are located right in the middle of the main stage area.


If you know other folks who enjoy having fun while giving back please ask them to check out the signup website.  We are still looking for volunteers for both Monday shifts.


Please put my cell number in your phone before you leave.  If you need to reach me for any reason please call 303-949-2363
