A Different Side of the Folk Festival: Volunteering 

While music is what draws in most guests to the American Folk Festival, there are some other reasons.Volunteering… without it the Folk Festival wouldn’t be able to happen.Some say it’s a great opportunity to help out.”I think it’s just the interacting with other volunteers, get to interact with people attending the fair and hear the good music. It’s just a lot of fun to do.”Volunteers at the festival do everything from selling merchandise, collecting money, and even keeping guests off the railroad tracks.Although volunteers are able to start signing up in march, the festival is accepting more people everyday.
