VOLUNTEERS AT THE HEART
OF THE ANNUAL CITYFOLK FESTIVAL
On June 28 - 30, the Cityfolk Festival returns to RiverScape MetroPark. It takes thousands of hours of volunteer time to pull together the three-day celebration of music, dance, culture and the City of Dayton Fireworks display on June 30. Organizers are looking to sign up volunteers for three- or four-hour shifts during the festival as well as during set-up and tear-down. People interested in helping out can visit the Cityfolk website, http://www.cityfolk.org or call (937) 223-3655, x 3001.
"We are very excited to be able to produce the festival in 2012. Our volunteers were so awesome last year in helping us ride out the storm we want them back so they can have fun while they volunteer this year. This festival is only made possible by all the hours that the volunteers put in to help us out. We love our volunteers." says Kathleen Alter, Cityfolk Executive Director.
"I have been a volunteered at the festival for as long as there has been a festival. I know what I do has value for Cityfolk and the community, that's why I do it every year" states long-time volunteer Larry LeMieux.
Volunteer opportunities for the festival range from helping to serve soda and beer, to selling t-shirts and CDs, to helping monitor stage areas for handicap accessibility to helping out with gate admission this year. A full list of positions is listed at www.cityfolk.org. To sign up for your shift, visit http://www.cityfolk.org or call (937) 223-3655 x 3001.
