The National Folk Festival comes to Greensboro, North Carolina, beginning in the fall of 2015, continuing a 75-year tradition of celebrating the roots, richness, and variety of American culture through music, dance, traditional crafts, and food. The "National," as it's commonly called, will feature more than 30 performing groups on seven stages with continuous music and dance performances, along with children's activities, a folk arts marketplace, regional and ethnic foods and more. The FREE, three-day festival is expected to draw visitors from across the United States.
ArtsGreensboro seeks seasoned candidates to serve as our local festival coordinator, a complex and exciting full-time (up to three-year) position that requires significant experience in management, large event planning, fundraising, and marketing. Also crucial is a belief in this endeavor and a desire to be an integral part of the effort to establish this community-building event in Greensboro.
