Folk Festival needs volunteers


The Louisiana Folklife Center at Northwestern State University is looking for volunteers to help with the 2017 Natchitoches-NSU Folk Festival July 14-15.  Volunteers experience the Festival from within by helping with security, the Country Store, KidFest, silent auction, information table and other positions as needed. Volunteers will work inside air-conditioned Prather Coliseum during the hours of 3-11 p.m. Friday, July 14 and 6:30 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday, July 15.

Perks of working at the Folk Festival include free admission to all events the day that is worked, free live music, free commemorative t-shirt for working five hours or more and meeting interesting people.  Volunteers do not have to be an NSU employee or student, resident of Natchitoches or Louisiana resident to volunteer.
