A corps of nearly 400 volunteers help produce this annual award-winning festival, a celebration of culture, tradition and community. Music and dance stages -- sponsored by the City of East Lansing -- feature rhythms, sounds, stories and spectacular musicianship over three days, from blues to bluegrass, Celtic, Cajun, Klezmer, Reggae and more; a Taste of Traditions food court with authentic regional and ethnic cuisine; Children's Folk Activities Area, with hands-on fun for the whole family; and living arts and heritage programs including Michigan craft guilds and Traditional Games, reflecting on the MSU Museum's traditional arts research.
For information on volunteering, call (517) 432-GLFF or email email@example.com.
The festival could not be staged without the tremendous contributions
of time and energy provided by the more than 400 volunteers involved
each year. We hope each volunteer is able to work six hours during the
festival. Most volunteer tasks are in blocks of about 3 hours.
In addition to having the satisfaction of being a part of making this
special event happen, volunteers receive a festival t-shirt, an invitation
to the Volunteer and Performer Party held on Saturday night of the festival,
access to the festival green rooms and a regular newsletter
featuring information about invited performers and special activities.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer member of the festival
team, we would love to hear from you. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
