Museum seeks event volunteers

Staff report

DAYTON — The Dayton Art Institute is seeking community volunteers as it prepares for its 45th annual Oktoberfest, taking place Sept. 23-25.

The Dayton Art Institute needs volunteers to assist with a variety of roles throughout the three-day festival. Oktoberfest is the museum’s largest annual fundraiser, and it wouldn’t be possible without the support of more than 2,000 volunteers each year.

“Our volunteers are the lifeblood of Oktoberfest, and we truly appreciate the many hours of time they donate to help support the museum,” said Oktoberfest Chairs Dave Seyer and Keith Wyatt. “We are honored to be chairing this year’s event and look forward to an amazing weekend on the grounds of the Dayton Art Institute!”

There are many different volunteer opportunities available at Oktoberfest 2016, including selling Oktoberfest mugs and t-shirts, selling soft drinks and water, staffing admission gates, serving as greeters in the museum and assisting with family activities at the ACCO Brands FamilyFest.

Those interested in volunteering for Oktoberfest must register through the Dayton Art Institute’s website. For more information and to register, visit
