State Fair Food Allergy Booth

August 23rd through Labor Day (September 3rd, 2018) - Our 12th year at the fair!

The AFAA booth once again hosted the ever-popular weight scale for fairgoers to learn their weight. In the booth, one booth volunteer prints the weight scale cards while other booth volunteers answer basic questions or dialogue with booth visitors.

AFAA is grateful to Health Fair 11 for the opportunity to have a booth for the 12th year in a row at the Crossroads building on the corner of Dan Patch Avenue and Cooper Street.

Enjoy the "Great Minnesota Get-together" and educate thousands at the same time by handing out literature! Sign up for a 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 (3-9 pm) Shift Leaders must staff the booth from 6-9 pm.
