Festival International is currently on the hunt for volunteers to help make their 34th annual festival a success this April.

Just 42 days away from kick-off, GMA was joined by Festival Marketing Coordinator Carly Viator and LUS Fiber Public Information Specialist Ryan Dejean.

Each year over 2,500 people come together to make Festival International possible.

Viator says that their team could not run Festival without the help of each and every volunteer. And those opportunities cover all that Festival has to offer.

Security, merchandise, Scene des Jeunes, RFID stations, recycling and more. Viator says there is something for anyone who wants to get involved.

Volunteers are also offered several perks for taking part in the behind-the-scenes operations.

Besides getting to see how Festival runs and creating the perfect environment for attendees, volunteers will also get a ticket to an official volunteer party that gets underway once festival ends.

To register, check out their website festivalinternational.org/volunteer or on the Festival International App, which will be released soon.

Festival International de Louisiane runs from April 22 - 26, 2020 in Downtown Lafayette.
