Festival International Announces Volunteer Opportunities
Lafayette, LA – Festival International de Louisiane is officially looking for smiling faces to volunteer in a variety of positions during this year’s Festival, April 24-28, 2019. Festival is known for the supporters and volunteers that keep it fun and ticketless year after year.
“Volunteering is easy, fun and is a great way to be part of Festival”, says Scott Feehan, Executive Director of Festival International. “It takes over 2,500 volunteer slots to put this event on and we need every single one of them. If you love this Festival as much as we do, please join the Festival family and volunteer this year. Most slots are only a few hours and you can pick your shift. Plus we provide all volunteers with a free shirt and an invite to our Official Volunteer Appreciation Party in May.”
Festival International invites everyone to become a part of the volunteering experience. “One of the best parts about being a volunteer is seeing behind the scenes. It also brings you closer to Festival. We all own a part of Festival International because it’s a community-driven event. Our volunteers get hooked and many come back every year to lend a hand,” says Marketing Coordinator Carly Viator.
Registration is now open through the online Volunteer Center at www.festivalinternational.org/volunteer. Users can view all of the volunteer opportunities and register for the area and shift times of choice. The online system will allow individuals and groups to register and select the time and job of their choice. Bring your friends and family!
Volunteers are vital to the longevity and success of Festival. Service Chevrolet Cadillac, the official sponsor of the Volunteer Center and volunteer t-shirts, has made this experience something you do not want to miss out on.

-LIME Louisiana International Music Exchange
