The African American Cultural Festival of Raleigh and Wake County (AACF) is an annual celebration of African American culture, expressed through art, music, food and community. The two-day festival has connected diverse people and families from across our region with local, national, and international artists, performers, food vendors, area business owners, and our local media outlets.
The festival has become Raleigh's premiere destination for teaching, sharing, and celebrating the distinctive folk and cultural traditions of African Americans here in North Carolina and from around the world. This year, we are celebrating our 10th year anniversary and we're looking for volunteers to help make AACF a success! If you are interested in volunteering with us, please use the link below.
Please Note: All volunteer positions are listed by area of interest (i.e. Main Stage, Family Village, Food Vendor Area, etc.).
Youth may volunteer independently at age 16 with parent consent, and at age 12 with a parent or legal guardian present.
Volunteers must register in advance. If volunteers do not register before event day, they will not be approved for volunteer assignments.
