Become A Volunteer

We are currently looking for volunteers!  Many of our volunteers return each year, but we usually have a few openings for new volunteers. We also need people interested in billeting performers and crews for the weekend.

The festival hours are approximately 1:00pm to midnight Friday, 11:00am to midnight Saturday and 11:00am to 5:00pm Sunday. Security provides 24 hour service so there may be shifts any time during the day or night.

Volunteers are expected to contribute twelve hours but may work more if they wish. In return you will receive a weekend pass, parking and camping if you need it, light meals and snacks, but mostly the opportunity to enjoy a great weekend working alongside like-minded people who love to support our gem of a festival.


There are a few specific positions we are hoping to fill:
Volunteer Coordinator - this is a critical position in the management of the 350 or so volunteers that set up, run and tear down the Islands Folk Festival. This person will have three volunteers to manage recruitment, volunteer parking & camping report directly to the Board and chair the Festival Committee which manages the volunteers through 5 Team Leaders and 30 Coordinators. If you are up for a challenge and have organizational and people management skill or have experience at the IFF or other similar volunteer-driven organization, fill in the application below or talk to one of our Board members.
