Friends of the National Zoo is now recruiting for ZooFari! Friends of the National Zoo is seeking general event volunteers and volunteer bartenders for ZooFari on Thursday, May 16, 2019. ZooFari is the Smithsonian's National Zoo's premier food-tasting event, where more than 3,500 guests enjoy food, wine and beer from area restaurants, vintners and breweries; as well as music, a silent auction and more — all in the unique setting of the Zoo.

Volunteers are needed for each of these roles: Bartenders (who will serve beer, wine, soda and water), silent auction assistants (who will help guests register for the silent auction and help monitor the silent auction tent--must be comfortable with iPads), and general special event volunteers (who will be assigned as registration help, greeters, VIP area monitors, plus a number of other similar jobs).


The event runs from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., and the volunteer shift is from 4:30 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. You must be at least 21 to volunteer at this event. Questions? Call 202-633-4456.


Staff and volunteers are prohibited from consuming alcohol at this event and may not visit the booths to sample the food. Dinner will be provided for volunteers and will include a vegetarian option, but will not be able to accommodate other dietary restrictions so plan accordingly. This event is rain or shine.
