Volunteers help set up Taste of Parkersburg

PARKERSBOURG, W.Va. (WTAP) – Volunteers were busy Friday night preparing the Taste of Parkersburg for Saturday. Taste of Parkersburg is a wine and food festival and everyone who helped put it on is a volunteer.

They put up chairs and tables and hung signs. More volunteers will be back on Saturday to check in vendors and then some of them will volunteer during the event working at the front gate and selling vendor tickets.

Some will even pour the wine!

There is a lot of excitement surrounding the event as it has been canceled for the past two years due to COVID-19. Event organizers say volunteers make it all possible.

“It’s wonderful to be back. We started planning in January and are looking for volunteers as this is an all volunteer event. Everyone here is a volunteer,” said Susan Schuchts, volunteer coordinator for Taste of Parkersburg.

“We are happy to be back. We are very excited about this event,” said Betty Dotson, Volunteer Coordinator for Taste of Parkersburg.

The Taste of Parkersburg begins Saturday at 5 p.m. and runs until 11 p.m. at Bicentennial Park in downtown Parkersburg. Tickets are 15 dollars in advance. They are 20 dollars at the door.
