SAN ANTONIO – The Institute of Texan Cultures invites the San Antonio community to be part of the Texas Folklife Festival. Volunteer support is critical to the festival’s success. Volunteers are needed June 7 to 9 at the festival grounds.
The Texas Folklife Festival is the biggest cultural celebration in Texas. Annually, more than 250 participants and groups, representing over 40 ethnic communities, come together to celebrate their heritage. Located on the grounds of the Institute of Texan Cultures on the UTSA HemisFair Park Campus, the annual three-day event showcases the Lone Star State's diversity and rich heritage through a wide variety of ethnic food, music, dance, arts and crafts.
The 2013 festival dates and times are:
Friday, June 7: 5-11 p.m.
Saturday, June 8: 11 a.m.-11p.m.
Sunday, June 9: noon-7 p.m.
Festival volunteers receive a wristband valid for free admission each day to the festival. Also, they receive parking passes and free shuttle service to and from the festival grounds. Additionally, volunteers may purchase the volunteer t-shirt at a discount.
Festival volunteers are required to attend an orientation session, 6 p.m., either May 21 or 29, at the Institute of Texan Cultures, 801 East Cesar E. Chavez Blvd., San Antonio TX 78205.
Orientation will cover the volunteer handbook, procedures and job descriptions. Festival officers will be present to answer any questions.
