Would you recommend Great Lakes Folk Festival?

by Tina T. from Holt, MI (August 27, 2016)
This was my 4th year volunteering with the Folk Festival and I do it because it is fun, I get to meet new people, and listen to great music! This is a wonderful program for the Mid-Michigan area and usually draws in big crowds! There are over 10 different volunteer positions over the course of the weekend Festival, so you are sure to find something that will pique your interest and match with your time and talents.
