Volunteer

Volunteers love to chip in at the Decatur Craft Beer Festival. Maybe it’s all the free beer…?

You work alongside really cool people, get the inside sip, and you get a free ticket. But setting up a festival of this size requires good old-fashioned hard work. You may be asked to help move tents, tables, fencing, or boxes of glassware. You may just have to stand and put wristbands on people. We appreciate all of our volunteers.

If you have a particular interest in beer and decent knowledge base, please consider volunteering in the VIP area. The brewers will give you some basic information but it would be awesome if you can talk to the guests about what they are tasting.

Please note: Priority is given to folks who have volunteered at other Decatur events and service projects in the months preceding this event.
