Fun Fourth Festival.  This free family-friendly event takes place on July 4th along Elm Street and in our downtown parks.  The entertainment includes several stages of live performances, activities for children, food and craft vendors, and of course concludes with fireworks.  The event brings together about 80,000 folks of all ages and from all walks of life.  We need over 200 volunteers for a variety of roles, and especially have a need for assistance with children’s activities, our information booths, and set-up and breakdown.  There are also some volunteer opportunities in the week leading up to the festival.  To glance at the volunteer opportunities, you can go to http://funfourthfestival.org/

North Carolina Folk Festival.  (September 7-9)  You probably remember the National Folk Festival, which we hosted for 3 years.  Now we’re flying solo.  The festival will feature hundreds of performers on six stages, as well as craft demonstrations, activities for children, and food and craft vendors.  The performers represent cultural roots from all over the world.  Last year the festival attracted about 160,000 visitors, and believe it or not, we have over 1800 (!) volunteer slots—from pre-festival preparation work to after we break-down.  There are a variety of roles across a wide range of interests.  To view some of the opportunities, click on  https://ncfolkfestival.com/
