Last updated on May 1, 2017

June 29-July 4 and July 6 - July 9, 2017 on the National Mall between 7th and 12th streets (adjacent to the Smithsonian Castle). The Smithsonian Folklife Festival, established in 1967, honors contemporary living cultural traditions and celebrates those who practice and sustain them. Produced annually by the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, the Festival has featured participants from all 50 states and more than 100 countries.

Volunteers work closely with participants and staff, and are critical to the success of the Festival. They assist stage managers, help with audiovisual recording of performances, work with participants, support sustainability efforts, and much more. Year after year, volunteers return to the Festival because it offers great fun, great people and lots to learn.

We have volunteer opportunities available before, during, and after the Festival. You must be 16 years or older to apply.
