VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP FORM

The 2014 Washington Folk Festival will take place on Saturday, May 31, from Noon to 7:00 PM, and Sunday, June 1, from Noon to 7:00 PM, at Glen Echo Park in Glen Echo, Maryland. Admittance to the festival is free every year because of VOLUNTEERS!

 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.
