This year’s Fall Festival is just around the corner on October 5 and 6, and we’re looking for volunteers to help us produce this special event.

For the past 45 years, we’ve celebrated our rich Appalachian heritage at Fall Festival, our fun-filled weekend featuring the craft of over 240 craftspeople, continuous live music and dance on two stages, craft demonstrations, food, and kids’ activities.

Volunteers work in approximately 2-hour slots. At our admission gates, you’ll take cash, make change, and distribute wristbands and event programs. You might also help at our food booth, taking and handing out orders. You’ll receive free admission to the festival, a free meal ticket, and an event t-shirt.

Email volunteer@folkschool.org with the following information and we’ll put you on the list. We’ll be in touch later with final assignments and other details.

  • Your full name
  • Your email address
  • Your phone number
  • Day preference to work: Saturday and/or Sunday
  • Time preference to work: morning, mid-day, and/or afternoon
  • Are you under or over 21 years old?
    (anyone 16 or older is welcome to volunteer)

We’re looking forward to a great festival and welcome you to be an important part of it!
