Produced by The Folklore Society of Greater Washington and the Glen Echo Park Partnership for the Arts and Culture

In cooperation with The National Park Service, Montgomery County, and The Richmond Folk Festival

40th ANNUAL WASHINGTON FOLK FESTIVAL
VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP FORM

The Washington Folk Festival will take place on Saturday, May 30, from Noon to 7:00 PM, and Sunday, May 31, from 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM, at Glen Echo Park in Glen Echo, Maryland. Admittance to the festival is free every year because of VOLUNTEERS! That’s right: performers, emcees, stage crew, sound engineers, operations, food servers, and office staff all donate their time and their talents. As always, this year’s festival needs you.

 Volunteering takes only a few hours of your time. Tell us about some of your talents and interests and we will find a place for you to contribute to the Washington Folk Festival’s ongoing success.

 If you’re interested in volunteering for the festival, please fill out and submit the form below.
