Get involved – become a volunteer!

Augustoberfest is always on the lookout for volunteers!

The event has continued to grow in size and so has our need for volunteers.  This is truly a FUN EVENT!! There is tons of German food, music, and good times. Sign up as an individual or as a corporate team. We are looking for food and beverage servers, cashiers, volunteer check-in, and food runners. Volunteers receive a t-shirt and a meal voucher in exchange for their service – not to mention being a major part of what makes Augustoberfest so successful.
