Oktoberfest volunteerWir brauchen Freiwillige für McKinney es Oktoberfest! (Translation – We need volunteers for McKinney’s Oktoberfest!)

McKinney’s Oktoberfest would not be possible without the help of more than 80 community-minded volunteers. In short, they are the Oktoberfest!

So, who can volunteer?

Our Volunteer Program offers individuals and organizations an opportunity to give back to the community. Anyone or any organization is eligible - from individuals who just love Oktoberfest and the atmosphere to civic, school, church, professional and corporate groups.

Shifts / Duties

Shifts are in four hour blocks and some duties include handing out programs, floater, access control / event greeter and assisting with various contests and activities.

In exchange for their services, our volunteers receive an “Oktoberfest Volunteer T-shirt,” admittance to the volunteer hospitality zone with refreshments for breaks, and, of course, you’ll feel the true Gemütlichkeit in your heart of helping to preserve and sustain a treasured part of McKinney’s German and Bavarian culture.

Volunteers should also be friendly and polite with a customer service mindset. Come one, come all, but all Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age*- thanks!
