Central Pennsylvania's grass-roots voice for folk music and dance!

Volunteering with SFMS

Even a little means a lot.

Without our volunteers, stages would be silent, chairs folded, dance floors dark and quiet. You make the difference! Even a few minutes helping out at an event is a great way to support SFMS and to become part of a vibrant folk community.

To learn more, email volunteers@sfmsfolk.org or leave a message at (717) 745-6577 — or just sign up using the "Lend a Hand" button on our event pages.

Coming to the Festival?

Coming to our Folk Festival the last weekend in July? Volunteer to earn free admission the day of your shift! (Regular-season event volunteers must still purchase a ticket.)

More ideas:

  • Good at writing?

    Perhaps you'd enjoy creating newsletter articles, CD reviews, or press releases for our events.
  • Get around a lot?

    You could distribute posters and newsletters to businesses and public spaces around the region.
  • Like to cook? or shop?

    Audience members appreciate refreshments donated for sale at our events. Performers and other volunteers appreciate a good meal before a concert.
  • Never ready to go home?

    We'd love your help straightening up after events.
  • Have extra time before events?

    We can use help setting up too. Volunteers are also needed to take tickets and staff sales tables at events.
  • Have ideas for events?

    By all means, tell us about your ideas and let us support you in carrying them out.
