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 22 through September 2. 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. Note: the number of applicants exceeds the number of jobs available.
If you registered (in person or online) or worked in 2007 through 2012, you do not need to register again. You must stop by the Employment Center to update and re-activate your registration.
Please do not register more than one time. It does not improve your chances of being referred to a job interview.
To be considered for any position, you must visit the Employment Center in person after completing your online registration.
The Employment Center is located at 1129 Cathlin Street from June 3 through August 24.
