Welcome! This is your first step in being a part of our volunteer family! As a volunteer you will receive free entry to the festival for the entire day of your shift, free parking and shuttle, and 10% off camping at River’s Edge Campground. Most importantly, you will be supporting a major fundraiser for Wilkes Community College. The benefits from this festival to our students and community are too many to list! Your support is greatly appreciated. In other words, you ROCK!

First, you will want to check out the different kinds of Volunteer Opportunities we offer. After you’ve read all the fun things you can do, fill out the online volunteer application. If you have any questions or need assistance filling out the application, please give our volunteer coordinator a call at 336-838-6262 or email merlefest.volunteer@wilkescc.edu.

Volunteer applications will open on October 1, 2024.
