St. Paul Oktoberfest 2018

Hello Volunteers! Join us for St. Paul Oktoberfest (September 14 & 15) at the historic Schmidt Brewery (882 W 7th Street in St. Paul, 55102)! We would love to have you as part of our team!

You are welcome to sign up for multiple shifts (there is a 15 minute overlap between shifts, ignore conflicts if signing up for multiple in a row), and volunteering is more fun if you do it with friends. If you sign up someone else with you, please be sure you do a separate entry with their name & contact information as well, or at least add their first & last name in the comments line.

For all those signing up for Wristband/ID Booth or Bartender Stations, if you have not done the GAI Alcohol Awareness/ID training, we will do a brief training on Thursday evening (September 13) at 6pm. Information about cashiering for these positions will also be included. Please stay tuned for an email with more information about the training. Note: all volunteers handling alcohol must be at least 18 years old. 

All those signing up for a Info Booth or Food Stand, must also attend a brief cashier training, which will take place Wednesday September 12 at 6pm. We will be using cash and credit card, NO TOKENS OR TICKETS this year. 

When signing up, please be sure to include your first & last name, as well as your email address. For phone, please provide a cell # if possible. Please add any additional info in the comments section (such as special skills or limitations). You will receive an automatic confirmation email right after your sign up is submitted. 


Contact the GAI Office (651-222-7027 ext.0) or email [email protected] with any questions or if you need assistance signing up. Vielen Dank!
