Volunteers Needed At Illinois State Fair

SPRINGFIELD, IL – The Illinois State Fair is looking for volunteers to help in a number of areas throughout the ten days of this year’s fair. These areas include information booths, various buildings, the Illinois State Fair Museum and the new interactive agricultural exhibit, “Farmer’s Little Helpers.”

A minimum of 15 hours of service is required for all information booth, building and Illinois State Fair Museum volunteers. However, additional hours may be requested.  “Farmer’s Little Helpers” volunteers can chose from 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. shifts or 2:15 p.m.-7:15 p.m. shifts. 

“The Illinois State Fair draws nearly three-quarters of a million people to the fairgrounds in Springfield each year,” State Fair Manager Amy Bliefnick said.  “The men and women who donate their time to the fair are a big part of its success.”

All volunteers will receive a free 2010 Illinois State Fair t-shirt, plus complimentary admission and parking. Applications can be obtained by visiting our website at www.illinoisstatefair.info. A training workshop will be held Sunday, Aug. 8, at 1 p.m. in the Emmerson Building for all applicants.

For additional information, please call the Special Events Office at (217) 782-0777. The Illinois State Fair will be held Aug. 13–22.
