Volunteer Opportunity: Smithsonian Folklife Festival

Volunteers are critical to the success of the Festival and work closely with the Festival staff and participants. Volunteers contribute to a variety of duties, which include conducting surveys, assisting stage managers, audiovisual documentation of performances, and general administrative and production support. These are just a few of the opportunities available. Year after year, volunteers return to the Festival because it offers great fun, great people, and lots to learn.

Please follow the link to apply. Not all opportunities are posted yet; please check back soon for a complete list. Applications are due June 5.

If you already have a Smithsonian EVANS Volunteer Account, you will not need to fill out the application, but you will need to update your Festival availability and job preferences. Log into your account and look under Volunteer Menu in the left column. Select My Profile, where you will be able to fill out your Festival volunteer job preferences and availability.

Contact volunteer coordinator Michelle Banks at CFCH-Volunteer@si.edu or call 202.633.7488 for more information.
