Volunteers are critical to the Great Minnesota Get-Together! These essential folks are what make many of our exhibits memorable and engaging. No expertise required – just a willingness to help your fellow fair fans make the most of their day! Most shifts are two to three hours, and we’ll show you what to do. Sign up solo or with a group! Each volunteer receives a FREE admission ticket to the fair! Learn more about the various opportunities available:
