Volunteer at the North Carolina Folk Festival!

Festival Volunteering

The North Carolina Folk Festival needs the support of more than 1,200 volunteers to work with Festival organizers to pull together an event that will make Greensboro—and North Carolina—proud!

All North Carolina Folk Festival volunteers will make great memories and enjoy more than a few pleasant surprises. At the end of the day, volunteers will go home with a free T-shirt and the undying gratitude of Festival attendees and organizers. Average volunteer shifts are two to three hours, and many volunteers sign up for multiple shifts throughout the Festival.

Registration and Scheduling

The Festival will post volunteer opportunities and role descriptions in Spring 2018.  We will open registration for all returning and new volunteers after that time.

If you are interested in volunteering at the North Carolina Folk Festival and are not already in our database, please submit your contact information in the form below and we’ll be sure to notify you when information and opportunities are posted in 2018.  Thank you!!!

Note for Student and Youth Volunteers

If you are at least 16 years old, most of the assignment preferences are open to you, and we look forward to having you! (If you’re under 18, you’ll need a parental waiver, and will not be eligible to serve in Transportation or Site Set-up; our Beer and Wine Areas are restricted to age 21 and up.) If you’re logging service hours, let your team captain know, and he or she will note it at the end of your shift.

Age 12 – 15? You are welcome to join our Bucket Brigade! Just be sure to have a parent or other adult register to serve with you. Again, service hours will be noted at the end of your service.

(Sorry, no volunteers under age 12, with or without an adult.)
