Civic and Youth Organizations

The State Fair has opportunities for non-profit and community service organizations to raise money by volunteering during the nine day event. Community groups including youth, seniors and more can assist in a variety of services including helping with barn cleaning, serving in guest relations and more. Representatives of the Fair and the organization develop a volunteer plan outlining the hours, type of work and benefits for the group. It’s a short commitment for members but a great opportunity for the organization.
