Volunteer With Us

Chicago’s largest beer festival is returning to Soldier Field! We love Chicago – the sports teams, the skyline, the food, and…without question…the beer. It’ll be the same beer festival on Soldier Field you know and love, but with an upgrade!

We are looking for nonprofit organizations to help out in exchange for a monetary donation or individuals interested in volunteering for fun and to gain festival experience! Volunteers will help execute the event by pouring beer, managing the VIP Area, managing pretzel necklace stations, and helping in our ticketing and access areas (for those under 21!)
