Oktoberfest Munich 2024 – volunteer at a festival

Eager to embrace life’s adventures? Dive into a world of endless opportunities with us, from permanent positions to seasonal gigs.

Volunteer at a festival in Germany – requirements & tasks

Since 2008, we’ve proudly held the title of the biggest, best, and most inclusive Oktoberfest tour in Munich – and Oktoberfest Munich 2024 continues this tradition.

But what’s a festival without its crew? And what’s Stoke Travel without our beloved Stokies? We’re always on the lookout for festival legends to join us in creating amazing, unforgettable, and downright outrageous experiences.

Our festival crew includes people from all walks of life – acrobats and electricians, dancers and accountants, hospitality workers and carpenters, bar staff and receptionists, tour guides and even soldiers on leave. If you have a passion for travel, people, and/or partying, chances are we’re going to hit it off just fine.

Save the dates for Oktoberfest 2024: The 189th Munich Oktoberfest will run from September 21st to October 6th. And don’t forget, our Stoketoberfest campsite welcomes you from September 20th to October 7th.

Volunteer at a festival in Germany – available positions

  • The Beginning, Polishing a Turd: Get ready to roll up your sleeves and dive into the festival prep. From erecting tents to inflating mattresses and transforming spaces rain or shine, you’re the heart and soul of the festival!
  • Check-in & Reception Desk: As the welcoming faces of Stoke, you’ll kickstart the festivities. Handling guest check-ins, tent assignments, and ensuring everyone finds their way, your smarts and that winning smile will set the perfect tone for the adventure ahead.
  • Welcome Crew & Tent Runners: Bring the party to life as the vibrant faces of Stoke. Whether it’s offering sangria or beer upon arrival or being the go-to for camp and festival info, you’ll be the beloved spirits of the event, spreading cheer every step of the way.
  • Bar Maestros: Keep the libations flowing and the good times rolling as the guardians of the Stoke bar. You’ll ensure that the drinks keep coming, keeping the party alive well into the night.
  • Tent Turnover: Work as a cohesive unit to turn over tents swiftly, prepping them for the next wave of campers. With the chance for a well-deserved lie-in and weekends off if the job’s done right, you’ll be the unsung heroes ensuring everyone’s comfort throughout the festival.
  • Kitchen Party: You’ll create and serve some epic meals to our travelers. From knowing the menu inside out to presenting dishes like a star of reality cooking shows, your tasty creations will fuel the adventure.
  • The Guru Tent (Swag & Travel Hub): Become the ultimate information hub and merchandise guru for both guests and staff alike. From answering questions with patience and expertise to managing bookings for buses, breakfasts, parties, and Stoke trips, you’ll be the backbone of organization, with the chance to earn commissions on additional trip sales.

You will work for about 30 hours per week.
