What’s your favourite part of the Festival?
My favourite part of volunteering at the Folk Fest is connecting with out of town guests (artists and audience) and discussing the beauty and quirks of Vancouver and the Folk Fest. One theme that pops up regularly (especially with artitsts) is the birkenstock 500, blanket territories and no-dancing zones. One artist last year suggested that we ‘invert’ the dancing/no-dancing zones so that dancing zones were switched and dancers were front and centre, while sitters could still enjoy the show. I think this is a great idea!
