Group Team Leaders
Every year MerleFest contracts with over 60 different non-profit community, civic, and college organizations to help make the festival happen. The groups represent a vast array of worthwhile causes in Wilkes County and this partnership represents the strong community that exists in the area. These organizations benefit by receiving funding for their specific needs and in turn they are a vital part of MerleFest which is the major fundraiser for Wilkes Community College. The groups tell us that their volunteers are eager to sign up for the festival – they work hard, but they recognize the importance of their service for their organization and for the community, and they get to experience a fabulous festival of music, moments and memories!
