Become a Host Family

Host families are the heartbeat behind our festival. These incredible families volunteer to open their homes and hearts to all International guests to the World Folkfest. The World Folkfest is historically unique, having provided Host Families all Thirty-One years to our International Ensembles.

  • Host families are needed for the performers cominag to participate in Springville World Folkfest. This is an international folkdance festival where the dancers stay with families in the community, and share their talent and culture with us.
  • Hosting is an amazing family opportunity to serve and share culture, build lifelong friendships, and provide valuable interaction with people all over the world.
  • The dates for hosting this year are July 31st through August 4th,¬†give or take a day on each side depending on arrival times. Families can host all, or part of the week.
  • For those unable to host, but still want to participate, drivers are needed to support host families who can host, but have no transportation available for guests during the day. In other words, if you want to help, we can make accommodations for any situation.
