Each year Greensboro welcomes thousands of people to Southland Jubilee, the region’s largest heritage arts festival. Southland Jubilee is looking for volunteers to welcome these people into downtown Greensboro.
Each year numerous volunteers dedicate their time to the success of the festival. Without the help of these gracious people, Southland Jubilee would not be the event that it is every single year.
Southland Jubilee is calling for volunteers. Volunteer shifts include, 5:30-8pm Friday, April 19 assisting with vendors checking in, decorating the Main Stage sponsored by Reynolds Plantation and The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, setting up tables and chairs, and working to decorate the Children’s Area.
The volunteer duties do not stop there. There are also shifts on Saturday, April 20 all day long. These shifts include, 6:30-10am assisting with vendor check in, helping set up tents, decorate the entrance ways, and other duties that may apply. If that early in the morning is not your friend, we also have duties starting at 9:30am until 4pm. These duties include, volunteering in Festival Hall, working in Southland Jubilee Headquarters, selling merchandise, and giving out information. The last shift of the day begins at 4pm. This shift will include helping remove decorations from the entranceways, assisting vendors with taking down tents, and packing up the Jubilee information.
Volunteers are very essential to those managing the festival. Please considering helping Southland Jubilee make its 15th year great by volunteering your time to help set up the festival. All volunteers will be rewarded with a free festival T-shirt if they sign up by April 8.
For those who are interested in volunteering at Southland Jubilee, contact Kendrick Harris, Southland Jubilee Chair, at (706) 453-7674 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

On April 20 Southland Jubilee will welcome festival attendees to celebrate their 15th year of bringing arts, food, music and heritage to downtown Greensboro.
Each year the Southland Jubilee festival grows even larger with the growth of the residential community, increased advertising and most importantly, the support of local businesses. The festival not only offers an enjoyable weekend experience for those attending but also provides an economic stimulus for local businesses in Greensboro.
Southland Jubilee is celebrating its 15th year! From 9am-5pm on Saturday, April 20 the streets of downtown Greensboro will be once again filled with thousands of people in search for the perfect arts and craft item, funnel cake and to hear that awesome band live on the Main Stage.

To acknowledge the importance of this year’s festival, Southland Jubilee has a new look. A new logo was designed reflect the tradition and feel of Greensboro and the significance of the annual festival.
