The Smithsonian Folklife Festival, established in 1967, honors contemporary living cultural traditions and celebrates those who practice and sustain them. This year's Festival will feature Circus Arts and Youth, Culture and migration, On the Move: Migration Across Generations. This 50th Reunion weekend celebration will bring together past staff, volunteers, participants and visitors to reflect on the transformative power of the Festival. GET INVOLVED: Volunteers are needed before, during and after the Festival to assist stage managers, help with audiovisual recording of performances, work with participants, support sustainability efforts, and much more. You must be 16 years or older to apply. The Festival is an excellent opportunity for students who must complete community service/service learning hours. Join in for what promises to be an extraordinary ten days filled with creativity, culture and community.
