This morning, Katie Lopez chatted with Carly Viator and Alex Antonwitsch with Festival International about the perks of Volunteering for Festival International.

Festival International de Louisiane is only 7 days away and the non-profit organization is still looking for volunteers to help during the 5 day celebration. Take part in the largest international music and arts festival in the United States by volunteering!

Make this your year to volunteer! Be one of the 2,500 amazing people that make Festival International possible.They have opportunities in security, merchandise, Scéne des Jeunes, trash and recycling and much more.  See the world of Festival from behind the scenes – be part of our Volunteer Family!  Registration is still open!

Sign up with friends to make your own volunteer dream team, or make new friends during your shift. Either way, you will make some great memories!

Why should you volunteer? Because Festival Volunteering is:

  1. Super fun! Festival volunteers are known to have a good time during their shifts. You can see it in their smiles and dance moves.
  2. What makes the Festival world go ’round. They literally could not make this ticketless event happen without volunteers.
  3. The perfect way to see the magic from behind the scenes. How do they pull off hosting the largest international music and arts festival in the United States? Watch how the puzzle fits together from the other side.
  4. Your ticket to the Official Volunteer Party after Festival. Come celebrate with Festival! There will be an exclusive party for festival volunteers in May to celebrate another successful Festival weekend!

Festival International begins on April 24 and will wrap on April 28.
