Folk Festival seeks volunteers

Crafts on display at the Natchitoches-NSU Folk Festival

The 40th Annual Natchitoches-NSU Folk Festival will be July 26-27 and many volunteers are needed to help the festival run smoothly, while also enjoying festival events. Every year, the festival relies on volunteers to help with the various components, such as providing security and other positions as needed. Volunteers will work inside air-conditioned Prather Coliseum and will be needed Saturday, July 27 from 6 a.m. until 10:30 p.m.

Perks for volunteers include free admission to all events the day they work, listening to live music on three stages, meeting great people and a free commemorative festival t-shirt for working five or more hours.

Volunteers do not have to be an NSU employee or student, resident of Natchitoches or a resident of Louisiana to volunteer. Volunteers will receive no financial remuneration for the hours they work.
