Hundreds of volunteers promote the Foundation mission, primarily during the summer months and at the Minnesota State Fair. Groups and individuals bring a variety of skills and expertise – everything from helping with mailings, to rolling posters, to staffing information and sales kiosks during the Great Minnesota Get Together.
Last year, Foundation volunteers contributed over 2,300 hours of their time to support our mission. We have a great group of volunteers already in place but are looking for more people to assist during the State Fair with sales of the Blue Ribbon Bargain Books at kiosks around the fairgrounds.
If you are interested in volunteering with the State Fair Foundation, either during the fair or at other times of the year, please contact Jennine Duda at (651) 288-4323 or email@example.com.

State Fair Story
"We all have our State Fair story and how beloved our fair is to us. My story is much like everyone else's...the animals, the people, the food, the music, the competition. Giving back through community service is a long held family value. I am passionate about the Great Minnesota State Fair so it's a natural choice for me to volunteer with the State Fair Foundation. My involvement gives ME a sense of value, pride, and ownership that none can compare. I am the fair, not just for 12 days."
