Raise Money for The River by Volunteering at Brat Fest | The River Food Pantry
English Spanish

You can raise money for The River Food Pantry by volunteering at the World’s Largest Brat Fest this Memorial Day Weekend at Willow Island at the Alliant Energy Center!

When you sign up to volunteer and select ‘The River Food Pantry’ as your charity to support, $8 for every hour you volunteer will be donated to The River—South Central Wisconsin’s busiest food pantry! As a volunteer, you also receive a Brat Fest t-shirt, brat, and ice cream. Plus, you get to enjoy the festival before or after your shift(s)!

What do Brat Fest volunteers do? Grill, cashier, count attendees, drive shuttles, stock condiments, make sure the event grounds are clean, etc. Shifts are available May 22–31 to help before, during, and after the event. The festival runs May 27–29. Shifts range from 2.5–4.5 hours. Sign up is first come first serve. Volunteers must be at least 14 years old.
