National Folk Festival Continues to Search for Volunteers This Weekend

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- Volunteering means so much to one local company - it allows its employees to do so during work. That comes in handy for the National Folk Festival in downtown Salisbury.

Chesapeake Utilities has 35 employees joining set-up, and 35 more volunteer packing the festival up after it ends. 
 
"It means a lot to our company because we're close to the shore. Our employees live here, they work here, they're part of the community. And we recognize the cultural benefit the economic impact all the positive things the folk festival brings to Salisbury." says Jared Shelton, the company's commercial and industrial acccount manager. 
 
But it isn't just volunteers setting up the event. Many vendors, artists, and businesses are contributing. 

"The festival is a great event. We're looking forward to volunteering at this one and the one next year" says Shane Breakie, the company's assistant vice president.
 
The National Folk Festival starts Friday at 6 p.m. It is still accepting volunteers. To sign up visit https://nationalfolkfestival.com/volunteer/
