The Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival is very fortunate to have an array of volunteers that give their time so generously.  Each committee listed has a chairperson and that chairperson works with people that donate countless hours to create the breath-taking sights and sounds of the festival.  Without each individual doing their part, the visitors to Pineville would not be able to experience the Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival and all its beauty.  

*If you are interested in volunteering your time to the festival feel free to contact us.
