The Little Sea Folk Festival is an all-volunteer organization all the way up to the top. Every penny brought in is put right into programming and not into salaries. We very simply couldn’t do it without the amazing volunteer staff who lend their time and talents in the months and weeks leading up to the day, and the entire crew of volunteers who join us on the day to make all the magic happen. We have a number of opportunities this year and hope you’ll consider joining the team. Have a look at the position descriptions below and then click through and sign up! All event volunteers receive an exclusive staff t-shirt and admission to the festival before and after their shift. Multiple shifts encouraged if it’s not too cheeky to say so.
All activities will occur on June 8, 2019 at the Woodfords Congregational Church at 202 Woodford Street, Portland, Maine. Specific information will be emailed to you after your volunteer shifts are confirmed.
