State Fair Food Allergy Booth

August 24th through Labor Day (September 4th) - Join us in our 11th year at the fair!

New this year! The AFAA booth will be hosting the ever-popular weight scale for fairgoers to learn their weight. In the booth, one volunteer will print the weight scale cards; one volunteer will sit at the booth to answer basic questions or dialogue with booth visitors; two volunteers will be in front of the booth handing out bookmarks.

AFAA is grateful to Health Fair 11 for the opportunity to have a booth for the 11th year in a row 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 now for any open 3 hour shift, and receive a free admission ticket for each day you sign up!* Volunteers also receive a tee-shirt!

Apply online to volunteer. Please include your mailing address so we can send you your ticket.* Also, include your phone number (cell phone preferred) so we can contact you.

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 (3 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.

Available Volunteer Shifts:

Dark Green: need 4 volunteers (A whole family can sign up!);
Lighter Greens: need 1, 2 or 3 volunteers

Where is the Food Allergy Booth?

The Food Allergy Booth at HealthFair 11 is in the Crossroads Building on the corner of Dan Patch Avenue and Cooper Street. (Just 2 short blocks west of the Snelling Avenue Gate, one of the Park & Ride drop off/pick up locations.) See the State Fair map.

It is close to the Skyride, Bandshell (free shows!), Space Tower, Butterfly House, Kidway rides, and Creative Activities Building.

Remember, that's T-25 ("Crossroads Building/HealthFair 11") on your State Fair map.

* Because our supply of tickets is very limited, any volunteers beyond the maximum number per shift (4 for 9-noon, noon-3, and 3-6; 3 for 6-9) will be required to purchase their own ticket.
