Heart of the Valley Homebrewers

Septembeerfest 2022

Volunteering for the 15th Annual Septembeerfest

Thank you for taking the time to consider volunteering for the Heart of Valley Homebrewers Septembeerfest.

We want Septembeerfest to be a safe place where we all can gather and enjoy the best beers, ciders, and meads from around the Willamette Valley. Since our event takes place in a large outdoor space, Septembeerfest meets all current state guidelines as an acceptable venue for a public gathering during the current COVID-19 conditions.

We're requiring all volunteers and staff at Septembeerfest to be fully vaccinated. 

On September 10th, 2022, the Heart of the Valley Homebrewers Septembeerfest will mark its 15th anniversary. This fall festival has grown steadily since its inception and has become an expected tradition of the Corvallis beer scene as we endeavor to highlight the best and most interesting beers, ciders, and meads produced regionally and beyond. This year Septembeerfest is once again among the trees of Avery Park, and serves as the showcase event of Corvallis Beer Week.

While we missed everyone the last two years, 2019 marked another fantastic Septembeerfest with attendance of over 3,100 participants. We boasted an awesome beer, cider and mead selection (76 varieties from 29 independent breweries), great music and food. Most importantly, we raised over $20,000 for Linn-Benton Food Share and $9,000 for Heartland Humane Society. Since 2006 Heart of the Valley Homebrewers, a non-profit organization, has donated over $235,000 to support a number of worthy local charities and organizations.

It is with your help that Septembeerfest can be a fun-filled community celebration of the local homebrewers and craft beer industry, as well as a successful fundraiser. We have many different opportunities available depending on your skill set and availability. Although a majority of the volunteer shifts are on the day of the festival, we have other volunteer opportunities on different days as part of our setup, teardown and cleanup.

You say you're interested...well that's great! To become a Septembeerfest volunteer we simply ask you to sign up for at least one Volunteer shift (more is okay!), show up 20 minutes prior to your shift for any last minute instructions/questions, and attend your shift in its duration. Educate yourself about your specific Volunteer shift and all things Septembeerfest, then share that information with those patrons you come in contact with. Most Volunteer shifts are 3-5 hours and are a fun way for craft beer enthusiasts to help out! We also ask that you abide by the Volunteer Guidelines listed below.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
