Michigan State Fair

Michigan State Fair Volunteers Needed!

It goes without saying that volunteers are critical to the success of the Michigan State Fair. Volunteers assist in a variety of ways and positions from welcoming and directing the crowds of visitors to working behind the scenes at the Shrine Circus. Our volunteers join us from all walks of life and are from a broad array of communities and organizations across the State of Michigan. If you are interested in sharing your valuable time, energy and enthusiasm during Labor Day weekend, your dedication will greatly contribute to the success of this event! We are grateful for the many volunteers who share their time and talents with us. 

 

WHO ARE THESE VOLUNTEERS? 

PARTNERSHIPS

For the past several years we have been fortunate to have volunteer participation from the employees of Blue Cross Network of Michigan.

Our long-standing partnership with the Detroit Moslem Shriners not only expands our volunteer base but also provides amazing entertainment with Shrine Circus performances throughout the Fair weekend.

VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS

  1. Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. 
  2. Most volunteer shifts require standing for the duration of the 4-hour shift. There will be shift captains coming around throughout the duration of the shift in order to relieve volunteers for a break if needed. 
  3. Friendly and welcoming to fairgoers. 
  4. Ability to arrive 15-30 minutes prior to your shift to allow time for check-in and placement at your shift location. 
  5. We would like to invite all volunteers to attend a training seminar prior to the fair weekend.
