Current Volunteers

2022 Volunteer Registration is now OPEN!

Well, after almost two years, we are SO excited to be able to invite you to volunteer for the 2022 Winnipeg Folk Festival! We know that things are feeling a bit tough again these days, but we are hopeful and even more so, determined that we will be together in July. There is a lot more work to be done to get ready, but it makes us so happy to be at this point – reconnecting with you volunteers. We hope you’re ready to join us!

We welcome a broad range of equity-seeking groups and individuals such as (but not limited to): Indigenous, Black and people of colour; 2SLGBTQIA+; new Canadians; persons of low socioeconomic status or disabled people to volunteer at the Festival.

We will be accepting volunteer registrations beginning Wednesday, January 26 for the 2022 Winnipeg Folk Festival, taking place July 7-10.

Congratulations - you're finished!

Volunteers who sign up for the 2022 Winnipeg Folk Festival are confirmed to return to their previous crew and transfers from 2020 will be registering for their new crew. Please note that you must provide your proof of vaccination to confirm a spot on your crew.

It is critical this year that we receive volunteer confirmations as early as possible so that we have time to plan for any gaps that we may have.

You matter to us, and so do your pronouns!

We encourage all our folkies to share their pronouns with us (e.g. she/her, he/him, they/them, a combination like she/they, and others). Here are some reasons why this is a good thing:

  • Asking for and using someone’s pronouns shows respect for their identity.
  • It normalizes the practice, making it easier for trans and gender-diverse people to share their pronouns.
  • It signals that you are willing to be an 2SLGBTQIA+ ally.
  • It helps create a welcoming and inclusive community for everyone.

If you would like to share your pronouns with us, you can add them to your email signature, web-conference ID, etc. Adding your pronouns to WFF forms such as your volunteer profile will also enable us to include them on materials such as your access pass or a name tag.

Whether or not you choose to share your pronouns with us, we ask that everyone use each other’s correct pronouns. You can even ask someone how they want to be referred to if you’re not sure. Try saying, "What are your pronouns?" And if you get it wrong, mistakes happen! Thank them for the correction and try to do better next time.
