Summer is just getting into full swing, but a fall festival is already looking for volunteers to make for another successful year.
Ocotberfest Volunteer Recruitment Chair Joy Sams stopped by Local 5 This Morning to talk about the more than 600 volunteers needed for Appleton’s Annual Octoberfest.
Appleton’s Octoberfest proudly returns for its 35th consecutive year Saturday, September 24, 2016. License to Cruise, the classic car show, will also return to kick off the weekend festival on Friday, September 23.
The Saturday event schedule will feature a full day of music representing a wide variety of genres including rock, country, oldies, polka and blues.
Every year Octoberfest relies on the generosity of more than 600 event volunteers who work as block captains, bartenders, sell wristbands and staff 100 nonprofit food booths. Volunteer signups for Saturday, September 24 are now open and the opportunities include block captains and bartenders. Those interested should visit octoberfestonline.org for more information and to sign up.
