Calling All Volunteers!

WE NEED YOU!!!!!  Oktoberfest is only possible because of the efforts of our dedicated team of volunteers!  Whether you have 1 hour to give or 10, every little bit adds up to make the day a success, and you might make some new friends in the process!  And student volunteers (middle and high school) will receive community service credit.

  • Become a Student Volunteer
  • Parent Volunteers:   You can sign up here.  There are many opportunities to help!  Whether it’s grilling sausages, selling desserts, monitoring student volunteers, or keeping an eye on the bouncy castle, WE NEED YOU!  The earlier you sign up, the greater the chance you’ll get your preferred time slot.
  • Non-Alcoholic Beverages Coordinator:  We really need someone who will step up to the plate to coordinate the non-alcoholic beverages this year (i.e. water, sodas, sports drinks).  We’ll point you in the right direction and help you with the quantities to order based on past years, but we need someone to be the point person.  It’s not a lot of work but it makes a BIG difference!  If you can help, please email Milli Metzker.


Promote your product or service to hundreds of families as an Oktoberfest vendor!  Download the Contract for Individuals or the Contract for Businesses. Tent, table and chair rentals are also available.  Please email Aline Khan or call 914-282-7188 for more information.


Sponsors for the event are welcome.  Participation could be a donation to our silent auction through a gift certificate or basket, hotel or spa vouchers, restaurant vouchers, holiday getaways, or items that showcase your business.  We welcome your marketing material at our silent auction table and offer your organization additional promotion on our website.  All donations are tax deductible.  Download our Sponsorship Letter for details, and please email Magdalena Tomasino if you are interested in becoming a sponsor.
