Needed: Vancouver Folk Fest Volunteers
Organization: Vancouver Folk Music Festival
Location: Vancouver, BC

The Vancouver Folk Music Festival is a unique, community-based celebration of the finest in contemporary and traditional folk and roots music. It is an event that connects generations of families, groups of friends, and community members who come to enjoy the music, dance, food, children’s activities, and the very special ambiance of Jericho Beach, one of Vancouver’s seaside jewels.

  • Diversity and Inclusiveness – Creating accessible and welcoming environments, free of discrimination, and pledging to treat all people with respect and dignity.

  • Social Justice – Connecting community-minded people who are committed to a fair and equitable society and providing opportunities for meaningful engagement.

Volunteers help create an amazing Festival year after year. Our team of 1000+ volunteers, in collaboration with staff, have mastered the art of establishing a multi-faceted village of entertainment and enjoyment. Together we create a supportive and appreciative space for artists to collaborate and perform; a welcoming, safe and comfortable space for audience members of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy the artists and their music, the festival and the park; an area for community organizations to engage and tell the audience about the good work they are doing; a festival that is environmentally aware and sustainable, and so much more!
