Would you like to get a backstage look at the production of one of the most successful festivals in North America?  Maybe rub elbows with a few of the performers?  You might just be in luck and your help is needed.  Volunteers are needed for the 2024 Montana Folk Festival as explained in this release from Mainstreet Uptown Butte:

With just a few weeks until the first notes of the 2024 Montana Folk Festival, more specific needs for volunteers are becoming clear. Festival organizers are inviting new volunteers for the 2024 Festival on July 12, 13 and 14 and updating their database for returning volunteers, too.

"Specific areas where we need the most help include Operations set up and tear down, Stage crew assistance building and breaking down stages, Backstage Hospitality, Info Booths, Beverage Ticket Sales and Beverage Servers," said Festival Coordinator George Everett.

"If any of these roles sound interesting, visit the festival web site for more details including descriptions of volunteer tasks at https://montanafolkfestival.com/volunteer/.  While there, you can also find a link to our online database to sign up."

For those new to this opportunity, shifts are four hours although many volunteers often decide to stay longer if they are having fun.  Volunteers signed up for shifts get a free T-shirt and a chance to see the festival unfold from a unique perspective -- from the inside.

For more information on how to volunteer for the Montana Folk Festival and the operations tasks still in need of volunteers, visit www.montanafolkfestival.com or email Bernie Shelton at mffbernie@gmail.com.
