August 26th through Labor Day (September 6th, 2021) - Our 14th year at the fair!
AFAA is grateful to Health Fair 11 for the opportunity to have a booth for a 14th year at the Crossroads building on the corner of Dan Patch Avenue and Cooper Street.That's T-25 on your State Fair map.
Enjoy the "Great Minnesota Get-together" and educate thousands at the same time by handing out literature! Sign up for any open 3 hour shift, and receive a free admission ticket for each day you sign up! Volunteers also receive a tee-shirt!
Most shifts require 4 volunteers (evenings only 2). Volunteers sign up online for one or more 3 hour shifts. Previous State Fair volunteers are eligible to be shift leaders. Shift Leaders train new volunteers, answer volunteers' questions, supervise shift changes, and substitute for absent volunteers in the event of an emergency. Shift Leaders are required to have previous volunteer experience at the AFAA State Fair booth and be on the fairgrounds & reachable two shifts (6 hours). Afternoon/Evening (3-8 pm) Shift Leaders must staff the booth from 6-8 pm.
Most shifts need up to 4 volunteers. (See chart below for shift openings.) Due to a limited number of tickets, four volunteers will receive tickets for each shift (2 for evenings). Note: Children under five do not require a ticket. If your family or group of friends is larger than the number of remaining spots in the shift, consider splitting up between two shifts.
Please arrive at the AFAA booth 30 minutes before your shift starts to get settled in, receive your t-shirt, familiarize yourself with the booth and materials, get a beverage, use the bathroom, etc.
Previous State Fair AFAA Booth Volunteers are eligible to be Shift Leaders.
