Northwest Folkife

Volunteers are an essential part of Northwest Folklife!

Volunteers are the heart, hands and feet of Northwest Folklife. From the beginning, so many people have generously brought their life experiences, skills and time to sustain a truly community-powered experience to the Northwest Folklife Festival and the array of programming offered throughout the ears.

Thank you so much for your support - YOU have helped us to make it to this milestone, our 50th Anniversary!

As much as we had all hoped we would be seeing each other in-person in 2021, for health and safety reasons our staff continues to work mostly remotely and our programming will be online for the foreseeable future. This means that, at the moment, our volunteer program has been put "on hold." Please check back as the community health situation improves.

In the meantime, we would love you to continue to be the amazing ambassadors of the living legacy of Northwest Folklife and encourage your networks to tune in and take part in From Home to Home: The 50th Anniversary Northwest Folklife Festival in May!

50 Years of Northwest Folklife

By using #Folklife50 on your social media pages, your stories, photos, memories and visions for the future will appear on our Folklife50 page! All you have to do is post on social media, and use the hashtag #Folklife50.
