Volunteer Opportunity! at Octoberfest


logo_octoberfestOctoberfest is a “community driven” event. Each not-for-profit booth that sells food at the event uses the profits to support their community projects.  For some, Octoberfest is their major fundraiser for the year.  It is estimated that more than $2.5 million have been reinvested in our community as a result of Octoberfest.

Description of duties: 
Block Captains are a very important part of Octoberfest.  Two block captains are assigned to each block on College Avenue.

Block Captains are responsible for:

  • Monitoring the set-up of not-for-profit booths
  • Monitoring tear down of the not-for-profit booths
  • Guiding lost children to the police command center or headquarters
  • Answering questions from the general public such as locations of stages, medical facilities and food booths
  • Talk with vendors if they are not following proper procedures/rules as explained to them in the vendor meeting.  If they continue to do so, call headquarters and one of the Board members will handle the situation.

The following are the available shifts:

  • 5:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
  • 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
  • 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
