Apply to be Folkmoot Festival guide, deadline is Feb. 28

Feb 15, 2017

Folkmoot USA is in search of friendly, culturally inquisitive, globally-minded guides for the 34th Annual Folkmoot Festival.

Though the work is demanding, the rewards of being a Folkmoot Festival guide are meaningful and memorable. A once-in-a-lifetime personal growth and cultural exchange experience awaits for up to 20 individuals.

Guides are ambassadors to visiting international cultural performance groups. Guides also serve as emcees, facilitators and translators. Additionally, they support seamless performances, transportation and meal schedules and ensure compliance with Folkmoot guidelines and N.C. laws.

Guides are assigned to their groups 24 hours a day, and are provided room, four meals each day, and are paid a stipend. Extensive training precedes the guide duty, which begins July 14; the festival begins on July 20 and service is completed on Aug. 2.
Applications are available at and are due by Feb. 28.
