Information Booth Volunteer Check List
The purpose for
coordinating an information booth with volunteers from the
Yuba-Sutter Region is to provide assistance to the
Amphitheatre’s staff and to visitors who need help finding
lodging, food, directions, or other services. Material is
provided by the Chamber of Commerce, downtown business districts
for Marysville and Yuba City, and Yuba County regarding motels,
restaurants, and other recreational opportunities in our region.
Laminated maps are placed on the booth’s counter to help orient
the concert attendee to the Yuba-Sutter region, and additional
concert information is provided by the Amphitheatre.

team member(s) prior to the event to confirm their attendance,

the schedule in bold-face print.
Booth volunteers can review the events that have been “booked”
by the Amphitheatre online at:

the volunteers with contact information, a status on info booth
shirts. It will show the designated team leader in bold-face
