In two weeks, the biggest annual event in Southlake will take place in Town Square — get ready for Oktoberfest September 30 through October 2! Presented by Texas Nissan of Grapevine and hosted by Southlake Chamber of Commerce, this year marks the festival’s 10th anniversary and volunteers are needed to help with operations and welcome the anticipated 50,000 people that will attend the three-day event from throughout the metroplex.
Volunteer shifts are available throughout the day for both adults and teens in the following areas:
As an incentive to recruit volunteers, the Southlake Chamber of Commerce will give away an iPad2, Wii Gaming System and Kindle. Each volunteer’s name will be entered into the drawing for each shift they work; the more shifts you volunteer, the greater your chances to win! Winners will be announced at the conclusion of Oktoberfest (do not have to be present to win).
In addition, the Southlake Chamber of Commerce will give a $250 credit towards a new Chamber membership or membership renewal to the business or organization that brings the most volunteers.
Each volunteer will receive a free commemorative Oktoberfest t-shirt at the completion of their shift.
“Volunteers are crucial to the success of Oktoberfest and we want people to know we truly appreciate their time and effort,” says Dana Davis, president and CEO of the Southlake Chamber of Commerce.
Southlake Oktoberfest is free admission to the public. Hours of operation are Friday 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., and Sunday 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. For additional information or to register as a volunteer online, go to www.OktoberfestSouthlake.com.
