Friend of the Festival
The growth and success of our Festival is due in large part to the help of people like you who love and support live storytelling. As a Friend of the Festival your investment will help stage this year’s event and ensure the continuance of this educational, artistic, and economic driver for our region.
The National Storytelling Festival needs the support of more than 500 volunteers to work with Festival staff and technicians to pull together an event that will make Jonesborough proud!
National Storytelling Festival volunteers will make great memories and enjoy more than a few pleasant surprises. At the end of the day, volunteers will go home with a volunteer button and the undying gratitude of Festival attendees and organizers.
We have filled all positions for the 2021 Festival. If you would like to be added to our volunteer list, please e-mail our Festival Volunteer Coordinator at email@example.com
