Volunteer Applications

The Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of the hundreds of volunteers who join us each year.

As a volunteer, we expect you to dedicate approximately 10 hours of your time over the festival weekend (usually in two or three shifts). Punctuality, teamwork, open communication, and respect are of the utmost importance, and most especially, a positive attitude. You are the face of the Folk Festival to our audience, so keep smiling!

In return, volunteers have free admission to the festival all weekend. We do our best to ensure you have enough time off to enjoy the festival. All volunteers also receive a Festival T-shirt, free refreshments in the Volunteer Tent, and an invitation to a special Volunteer thank-you event. Most importantly, you will enjoy meeting new friends and sharing a memorable experience with the rest of the team.

A range of opportunities are available. On the application form, you may choose as many as you like. We will do our best to match you with your preferred role(s), however you will ultimately be placed where your skills are needed most.

We thank you for your interest in being actively involved in the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival.
