Calling Volunteers!

The New Bedford Folk Festival relies on volunteers like you to keep the two-day music festival humming along. From checking wristbands to breaking down stages, we’re seeking volunteers with all levels of interest and abilities for Friday, July 10, to Sunday, July 12, 2020.  
In exchange for a four-hour shift, each volunteer will receive a weekend pass to the festival and a volunteer t-shirt.

Interested in volunteering? Great, click on the link to apply. After you’ve reviewed the volunteer position descriptions, select your preferences for the shift and ideal position.

If you have any questions regarding volunteering please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Nate Vaughan at nvaughan@folkfest.zeiterion.org
