Want to Volunteer?
The Folk Festival is always looking for good people who want to contribute. The information that follows is designed to help you decide if you want to become part of this major community festival.
What Will I Do?
Over 200 volunteers carry out a wide variety of tasks working on crews using a wide spectrum of physical, technical and interpersonal skills. If you are a new volunteer interested in volunteering please contact
Our Volunteer Coordinator will send you a special email containing an invitation to register at our Signup Volunteer Portal. This way your name will be in our mailing list and you will receive the link inviting you to signup for a crew and position once the signup site has been activated!
Some Volunteers need to be available for the entire Festival weekend (that’s when most tasks happen) and all Volunteers must contribute a minimum of 12 hours over the three days. You may be required to work additional hours if your Crew is shorthanded.
Some crews work primarily pre and post festival. These volunteers often contribute up to 30 hours assisting with the setup and tear down of the site. There are limited opportunities for most pre-festival crews. In some cases, people with specific skills may be recruited.
Meetings/Who Will Contact Me?
Each crew meets before the Festival to plan for the Festival to receive updated information, plan for the weekend and often to arrange their volunteer schedule. Attendance at the crew meeting is important!
Depending on which crew you select, you may need a background check. You will see this information in the crew description if this is necessary. *Please do not complete a police check until you have been placed on a crew.
A Final Word
The Kingsville Folk Music Festival is successful, in part, because volunteers work together as a team to provide excellent services to patrons, performers and other volunteers. The success of the festival is therefore dependent upon volunteers contributing fully to their crew and completing all scheduled shifts. Our volunteers are passionate about the festival and folk music. If you are looking for a rewarding volunteer experience, and would like to be a part of the KFMF volunteer community, we would love to hear from you.
