This is a photo of the great folklorist/poet/humanitarian Zora Neale Hurston. A stamp was dedicated in her memory and for her contribution to this genre of entertaining



It's that time of year again and as always, there are plenty opportunities for volunteers.

As in the past, we would like to extend to you the opportunity to share in this internationally-recognized destination event that celebrates the life and works of Zora Neale Hurston and the heritage and culture of people of African ancestry. Eatonville will host hundreds of thousands of visitors during the nine days of the festival and we would like to partner with you and your organization to assist us in providing quality volunteers who will help roll out the welcome mat and keep the joyous spirit of the festival vibrant and alive.

The 28th Annual Zora Neale Hurston Festival of the Arts and Humanities begins on Friday, January 20, 2017 thru Sunday, January 29, 2017 and will be held predominately in Eatonville, FL with supporting venues for festival events throughout Orlando.

As the Volunteers' Coordinator, I want to express how much I need your support. It is because of you that for the past 26 years this festival has been a success.

I thank you in advance for your commitment to service and I look forward to working with each and everyone of you as we continue to make the festival a great success.

P.S. for volunteer meeting dates please contact or send email.

Warmest Regards,

Kerry Charles
