We owe a big thank you to our 400+ volunteers who joined us for Oktoberfest 2018. Stay tuned for more information on how you can be involved with Oktoberfest 2019. Volunteer registration will open in July 2019.


Frederick’s Oktoberfest is produced by The Rotary Club of Carroll Creek and The Rotary Club of Southern Frederick County. Oktoberfest does not have any paid employees- everyone is a volunteer. Every penny we raise with your help provides resources to support our community projects.


The event is held at the at the Frederick Fairgrounds located at 797 East Patrick Street, Frederick, MD. Arrive at the Volunteer Check-In desk at least 15 minutes prior to your assigned shift. You will need time to park (parking is the same as patrons of the event), locate the Volunteer Check-In desk (in Building 8), get your T-shirt and get to your assigned area. Don’t forget to allow time for traffic in the area. Volunteers are provided food and drink during their shift in our Volunteer Support Area.


You must wear your cool volunteer T-shirt and name badge while you’re volunteering. By law, you may not drink alcohol while wearing your T-shirt and volunteering. We will have a private area for you to change your shirt or you can use one of the restrooms.

Thank you for volunteering for Frederick’s Oktoberfest
