Why do you volunteer for the Festival? What inspires you?
Going to the Folk Fest is incredible. Volunteering for the Folk Fest is double incredible. The Folk Fest is a weekend of musical education and exploration. From listening (and dancing) to familiar bands, to being in awe of new discoveries, to experiencing a mind-blowing collaboration during a workshop, the Folk Fest will change the way you interact with music.
The only thing that matches the music, is the people. Whether you’re hanging out with your best friends, reconnecting with other volunteers that you haven’t seen since the year before, or making new lifelong friends, the community that comes together for this weekend is like none other. The people are inspiring, open-hearted, always ready to dance and will make you smile from ear to ear.
The Folk Fest is hands down my favourite weekend of the year, and it’s an honour to be a part of something so special and unique.
