Volunteer at Tales of the Cocktail® 2024

Calling all cocktail enthusiasts and fellow spirits community members! We’re looking for volunteers to help support Tales of the Cocktail, July 21-26, 2024.

Founded in 2002, Tales of the Cocktail has grown from an annual walking tour of historic New Orleans cocktail bars into the world’s premier cocktail festival. Each year, the international bar and spirits industry is welcomed to New Orleans for a week of seminars, tastings, networking, and special events. With hundreds of opportunities developed specifically for bartenders, distillers, and other bar and spirits professionals, Tales of the Cocktail is the industry’s annual meeting place for the exchanging of new ideas, products, and techniques.

Tales of the Cocktail would not be possible without the support of volunteers at the annual conference. Please consider donating your time to make the most of your trip to New Orleans and support the conference!
