Volunteer at Brat Fest

Next opportunity with Brat Fest: 2024

It's time for Brat Fest again, which takes place in Madison on Memorial Day weekend. Each year, Brat Fest depends on nearly 5,000 volunteers from supporting organizations like DCHS to provide over 16,000 volunteer hours. DCHS receives $10 for each hour served by Brat Fest volunteers that select DCHS as their charity. Help is needed with set up from May 19-23 and then for the event on May 24, 25, and 26.

Anyone can do this, and it’s a fun way to help the critters waiting to find their new homes at Dane County Humane Society. Brat Fest volunteers do not need to be DCHS volunteers. You can even have family members, friends, co-workers join you in the fun at Brat Fest! You must be at least 14 years old to volunteer alone at Brat Fest.
