We welcome anyone between the ages of 14 to 94 to volunteer at this festival. You don’t need to speak an European language (although French can be a big asset). Students, families and expats are welcome.
Societies, associations, meet-up groups and clubs are welcome to participate. Each country has only one vote, one cultural table and one 20-minute or so dance slot. If more than one society or association from your country wants to participate, you will have to discuss how to divvy up the cultural table and the dancing session among yourselves. First come, first served.
Also, European businesses or product sellers are welcome to get involved. We have a marketplace with everything from pastry to Russian dolls to Turkish Jewelry or ancient sword demonstrations. If you feel that you are welling a European product or service, please get involved now – space is limited and first come, first served.
Finally, we are looking for event sponsors up to $10,000 to help covers costs and make the event inclusive to everyone. Let us know if you are interested.
