North Carolina Folk Festival organizers today announced the 2019 schedule for the North Carolina Folk Festival – a free admission, three-day weekend celebration of America’s roots & heritage in downtown Greensboro, Friday, September 6th to Sunday, September 8th.  

The schedule is available on the NCFolkFest website and the mobile app, which users can download for free from Google Play and Apple App Store.

The N.C. Folk Festival mobile app turns a standard paper schedule into a living, breathing program you can update on the fly. Here are some features of the mobile app:

Also, the North Carolina Folk Festival needs additional volunteers, especially shifts on Wednesday evening for the NC Folk A’Fare culinary event and leading up to the festival weekend, which tend to be harder to fill. Opportunities range from merchandise sales to airport greeters to the bucket brigade. Volunteers are encouraged to sign and choose shifts here: https://ncfolkfestival.com/volunteer/. Questions?
