This year the Folk Festival will be held August 16 - 18.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 52nd Annual Philadelphia Folk Festival. The Philadelphia Folksong Society is able to present this wonderful event every year through the generous support of over 2,000 volunteers!
Read this page for more information BEFORE registering below.
Some of our processes have changed to better serve you. If you must sign up via phone, please call the PFS office between 10 am and 5pm Monday through Friday. For your convenience, speak to a PFS staff member directly rather than leaving a message on the voicemail. On July and 4 and 5, the PFS office will not be open for registration by phone.
Note: all volunteers must be PFS members(at least Associate member level- $15). Also, volunteers (returning and new) must fill out a volunteer form and pay the volunteer administration fee ($25).
If you haven't volunteered before, it is quite an experience. Our volunteer culture is one of a kind, with unique committee history and traditions. Most of the volunteer help we need is in Security, Camping, and Parking Committees. If you have never volunteered, the Folk Festival volunteers committee will likely place you on one of these.
If you plan on registering more than one volunteer PLEASE LOGOUT of your Memberclicks account before registering subsequent volunteers. Additionally, everyvolunteer requires a unique email address, so you may not register someone else under your own email address.
This year volunteers will again be able to submit (or renew) membership AND sign up for volunteering (and pay fees) on the SAME form. Please note that all volunteer fees and memberships are non-transferable and non-refundable. We depend on your support.
