The University of Chicago Folk Festival has been entirely volunteer run since 1961.

As a volunteer, you get to

    Help make the 47th Folk Festival, February 2-4 2007, a truly fantastic event?
    Listen to some excellent traditional music, and
    Volunteers get a FREE TICKET to a festival performance for every 2 hours worked.

Help of all kinds is needed, including stage and sound crew, CD vending, ushering, selling cookies, and schlepping. All of this takes place on the University of Chicago campus, at Ida Noyes Hall or the Reynolds Club.

To volunteer, please email folkfestvolunteers@googlemail.com with

    - your name, email address and phone number
    - when you'd like to work (Friday eve, Saturday am/pm/eve, Sunday am/pm/eve)
    - what kind of work you'd like to do, (and any pertinant experience you might have)
If you've been involved before, or would like to work with anyone else in particular, just ask!
