To make sure you feel prepared and comfortable volunteering at the festival, we are offering two different Volunteer Orientation Meetings this year, either October 25 or November 1. After selecting your volunteer shifts, please sign up for one of these meetings by clicking on this link.

The all-volunteer Champaign-Urbana Folk and Roots Festival is truly a grassroots effort, from steering committees to ticket collectors.  Come and join our community and make friends, have fun, and support the folk arts!
