Volunteer, have fun at NC Folk Festival

UNC Greensboro will once again sponsor one of Greensboro’s biggest events – its folk festival.

Last year at the National Folk Festival held in Greensboro, UNC Greensboro made a major statement by creating Spartan Way, where our University’s story came shining through. This year, the University will do it again, and make the experience even bigger.

But the University needs your help. UNCG Communications is looking for faculty, staff, students and families who want to volunteer. It’s a fun way to spend a few hours over the weekend, be part of the festival, and support our University’s efforts to tell our story and celebrate our city.  

Volunteering at this event is a great way to support the University in its community outreach while supporting the arts and having fun

And get a free commemorative t-shirt as a thank you for your time.

The NC Folk Festival will be held Sept. 7-9 at stages throughout downtown Greensboro.

Whether you want to help hand out Spartan goodies to festival-goers, set things up in the morning or tear them down in the evening, or find other ways to support UNCG’s efforts at this major civic event, there’s an opportunity for you. Bring yourself, bring your family, and support the North Carolina Folk Festival and UNCG.
