Volunteer Application

The Cygnet Folk Festival is a non-profit event run by the community for the community. The Cygnet Folk Festival relies on its volunteers and needs around 190 to make it operate over the course of the weekend.  Volunteer jobs are varied: some are very involved, while others are quite straightforward, some are physical and others are more administrative.

Volunteer applications are always welcome!
