The Employment Center refers persons interested in working for Minnesota State Fair departments and concessionaires. Fair-time staff begins work on the opening day of the fair. This year’s fair runs from August 21 through September 1. The Employment Center staff will work to help find a position that best suits your skills and talents. However, there is no guarantee that a position will be available for every applicant.
Available fair-time positions may include ticket takers, ticket sellers, parking attendants, cashiers, retail sales, food service, etc. We do not post specific fair-time jobs on our website because the availability changes frequently.
The Employment Center is located at 1129 Cathlin Street from June 2 through August 23.
