Museum District - Richmond, VA

Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering at one of RVA's favorite 'fests!  We welcome over 40,000 guests each year and our event is managed and run by volunteers who fill over 700 shifts throughout the weekend (and several days leading up to the event)!

Click at the bottom to SIGN UP and have fun volunteering at Oktoberfest! 


Want an Official 2023 Oktoberfest Volunteer Hat and/or food/drink vouchers?

- All volunteers working a shift in FOOD CONCESSIONS, KITCHEN, or GRILL will receive an awesome Oktoberfest Volunteer baseball hat. 
- All volunteers working 2 shifts will receive a voucher for a beverage and pretzel or dessert. 
- All volunteers working 3 or more shifts will receive an Oktoberfest Volunteer baseball hat PLUS food & drink voucher. 

You can pick up your voucher and/or hat at the Volunteer Check-In Booth. 

** ATTENTION PARENTS AND STUDENT VOLUNTEERS (Ages 13-17): NEW THIS YEAR! You must have a parent sign off to approve your volunteering at the event (see waiver) and to verify that you will be in attendance for all shifts you sign up for. Only sign up for the shifts you will work. We understand that things can happen, but we are counting on you. This is a volunteer-lead and volunteer-run event and everyone's help is needed. In order to receive credit for your service hours (for your school AND for parish students/families applying for the Oktoberfest Scholarship) it is your responsibility to check in AND check out with your area lead onsite at the beginning and end of each shift you work. Your lead knows this and will be submitting their check in/check out sheet to the Oktoberfest Volunteer lead who signs off on all hours and will be reporting those hours to the high schools and Oktoberfest Committee on September 30, 2023. Thank you!

Thank you so much again for helping to make this year's Oktoberfest a continued success! We wouldn’t be able to hold this event – or raise thousands of dollars for scholarships - without YOU!

Thanks and God Bless!
