ZOObrew Volunteers

Support Education, Conservation, Zoological Research and Recreation.


Great opportunity for team building, plus exposure of your company/cause while volunteering to help the Oklahoma Zoological Society raise much needed funds for the Oklahoma City Zoo.

We have several volunteer shifts – set-up, registration, and beer & ice refill!

We appreciate all of our volunteers and look forward to seeing you on October 1st

Volunteer Benefits & Opportunities

Volunteering for the 2021 ZOObrew Craft Beer Festival is a tremendous way to give back to the community, and have fun at the same time! Come spend the evening with us creating one of the most sought after festivals in Oklahoma. 2,000 people will count on over 300 of "us" to raise over $200,000 for the Oklahoma Zoological Society and Oklahoma City Zoo! 

Your interest in helping us serve is humbling, and we are thrilled to have you.  We have matured our Volunteer program based on feedback and experiences over the past 12 years to make volunteering with us fun, and rewarding.  We are planning to have more pourers per booth, so there can be more breaks and leisure time for this demanding shift.

Contact Matt Burkholder for more information about how you can help!


1 shift = 2021 t-shirt, 2021 tasting cup, one 2021 comp ticket

Greeters & Check-In

Greeters serve as the first people patrons see at ZOObrew. In order to make a great first impression, greeters will be available to answer questions, direct people to the correct place and offer program guides. The greeter team also helps fill in gaps for other teams if needed (wrist-banding, line organization, distributing tasting glasses, etc).

While volunteering as a greeter, you will need to embrace the opportunity to help other teams while still being outgoing, cheerful and eager to help ZOObrew patrons. Please note that all information about the event and venue will be offered prior to event dates and also during the team meeting at the beginning of your shift.
