From working in the snow to pouring beer, the Frankenmuth Jaycees are skilled volunteers who organize events from the ground-up. Our calendar year kicks off in January, when a committee runs a food both and chicken-bowling at Snowfest, and wraps up in October with the 5K and half marathon road race known as Brückeläufe, or the Bridge Race.
In between projects, the Frankenmuth Jaycees also host membership meetings and socials like caroling in December. You don't have to be a member to lend a hand; people of all ages are welcome at (most) of our events! The exception is World Expo of Beer, where attendees and volunteers must be 21 or older.

Snowfest is typically the last weekend of January. The Jaycees run a concessions stand and chicken bowling, along with a dunk tank every other year with celebrity guests.
