Volunteer at Brat Fest and raise money for FB4K!

brat fest grilling

Since 1983, the World’s Largest Brat Fest has sold more than 4 million brats to help raise almost $2 million to benefit 100+ local charities. Brat Fest brings the community together each Memorial Day weekend—rain or shine—for 3 days of free music, fantastic food and family-friendly fun to help kick off the start of summer in the heart of downtown Madison, Wisconsin.

Brat Fest is a volunteer-run nonprofit event that provides an opportunity to be part of something larger than yourself, something that has evolved into a yearly tradition of honoring Wisconsin history and heritage, as well as showing appreciation to community leaders who help make Madison such a great place to live.

For each hour worked per person $ 10.00 will be paid to the organization each person chooses. We’d love you to choose Free Bikes 4 Kidz! All volunteers will receive a free T-shirt to wear during your shift and upon completion you’ll receive a free Brat and Ice Cream coupon.

Each volunteer will need to create a profile if new to the system in INITLIVE this is the name of the application we use for scheduling during the event. Everyone MUST have their own profile, which yes means individual email address is needed. You can use the same password for each member in your group. For example, use your organization name with a character attached. Within the account set up, it will ask which charity you belong to, and a drop down will have the participating organizations for 2023 make sure you select the correct one. Please feel free to share this message with as many as you choose. No maximum for any volunteer or organization.

The age requirements are 14 for all jobs except grilling is 18.

The site goes live March 15th at 10:00 AM this is a first come first serve. We have more than 240 shifts and more than 2500 slots to fill. Without you, Brat Fest and the charities wouldn’t be what it is today.
