Salisbury, MD: The City of Salisbury is partnering with United Way of the Eastern Shore and their GET Connected Volunteer Center to help build, organize and activate over 800 volunteers at next year’s National Folk Festival in Downtown Salisbury September 7-9, 2018.
“Not only can our local citizens enjoy this incredibly unique and joyous festival, but they can also be a proud part of it. Salisbury is going to shine in September and it will be because of the strength of our community to come together,” says Caroline O’Hare, Local Manager for the National Folk Festival.
As the Festival approaches, specific duties and volunteer tasks will be posted and assigned using the GET Connected Volunteer Center website.
All National Folk Festival volunteers will make great memories and enjoy more than a few pleasant surprises. At the end of the day, volunteers will go home with a free T-shirt and the undying gratitude of Festival attendees and organizers. Average volunteer shifts are two to three hours, and volunteers may sign up for multiple shifts throughout the Festival.
