Monetary donation will be given for hours worked based on the overall profitability and at the discretion of the DAS Fest USA Board. Register training will be held Thursday, August 3rd at 5:30 pm in the Biergarten Pavilion, beverages provided.
The Oktoberfest Tent is the huge 100 x 200 tent with the giant PROST letters on the outside and headline acts performing on the main stage.
The Biergarten is in the center of it all with the bar located in the Pavilion. It's a casual hangout for festgoers, with traditional German tunes played on the Biergarten (Park) stage, and a busy, busy bar.
The Backyard is relocating this year across the road under a 60 x 80 tent. This is where cans of local craft brews can be found, along with some favorite local "beyond-oompah" bands.
The Bark Park is where the little-legged Dachshunds and Corgis race. For those of you who know the Walworth County Fairgrounds, it's Machinery Lot.
Volunteers will receive the following for each shift worked:
- One sandwich from the famous Mader's Restaurant on the grounds!
- One bier token!
- An official DAS Fest USA Team t-shirt! When you sign up by June 1, 2023!
- Designated parking!
- Happiness knowing all proceeds help 45+ nonprofit organizations!
Volunteers who sign up by July 1, 2023, will see their name on the volunteer recognition banner on the DAS Fest USA grounds, on the volunteer page of the DAS Fest USA and United Way of Walworth County websites, and in a Facebook post.
