Volunteer for the Decatur Book Festival

The Decatur Book Festival

First Baptist Church Decatur will host attendees for the 12th AJC Decatur Book Festival (DBF) on September 2-3 (Labor Day weekend). We have been a book festival venue since 2009 and are delighted to again partner with our community and welcome hundreds of folks to our campus. Volunteers will cover a variety of venue support tasks in the sanctuary and Carreker Hall, have the opportunity to mingle with interesting authors, and receive a Decatur Book Festival t-shirt!

There are two ways you can serve for FBCD during the Book Festival:

1. Author Talk/Venue Support

Assist at one of the author venues by greeting attendees, directing them to seating, and managing lines during book purchases and signings.

2. Volunteer Check-in

Check in volunteers at FBCD office, give them their t-shirt, and direct them to their assignment in the sanctuary or Carreker. This is a perfect job for an organized, detail-oriented person who enjoys meeting people.

How to Sign Up 

Signing up is easy with the Volunteer Decatur automated system that allows you to see descriptions of the various roles, choose your preferred date, or make changes to your assignment after you sign up. The Book Festival volunteer calendar will be fully available in early July.
