The Deal with Wine Riot
Wine Riot is a wine education company that throws an expo-style wine tasting extravaganza that features Crash Course seminars, a live DJ, a Wine Riot photo booth, a temporary tattoo booth, Bubbly Bar and more! Our Chicago Wine Riot will take place at Venue One.
The Deal with Volunteering and your FREE ticket!
As a volunteer, you are asked to sign up for ONE of the shifts below--this will be the time slot that you intend to volunteer (we’ll have you sign up for your free ticket a little closer to the day of the event).
Here are some requirements to work as a volunteer:
- You may not drink during your volunteer shift.
- If you choose to volunteer for Riot 2 on Saturday night, due to the alcoholic nature of the event,you will not be allowed to pick Riot 1 as your free ticket.
- You will be required to attend one of two meetings before Wine Riot in order to get acquainted and go over your volunteer responsibilities. At these meetings we will get you set up with an awesome volunteer t-shirt and you will learn all about the logistical details of the event.
All volunteers must be at least 21 years old.
Volunteer jobs will be in organized groups and will consist of some or all of the following: Vendor check-in, ticket scanning, issuing wristbands, handing out guides and wine glasses, monitoring and assisting in Crash Course seminars, overseeing and helping with following areas: the venue floor/exhibitor booths, food area and photo booth.

*All volunteers for Riot 2 will be asked to provide their credit card information upon arrival to the volunteer meeting to ensure volunteer attendance after attending your free Wine Riot session. Your card WILL NOT be charged unless you fail to attend your volunteer shift after attending Wine Riot. In the case that you fail to appear at your volunteer session after having attended your free session, your card will be charged the full amount of a Wine Riot ticket.
Once you're signed up, we'll contact you (in the next few weeks) to see which meeting you will be attending and to tell you how to claim your free ticket!
