Volunteer - Make a Difference

1 of 3
The success of the Missouri State Fair Foundation is due in large part to the hundreds of Missourians who donate their time, talent and energy to serve as a Missouri State Fair Foundation volunteer. Each year, more than 500 Blue Ribbon Volunteers sell souvenirs and bottled water at multiple locations on the fairgrounds.

Your service as volunteer truly makes a difference!! By the end of the Fair, volunteers will have sold nearly 70,000 bottles of water and 5,000 souvenirs!! This revenue is used for preservation, education, and improvement initiatives that ensure the Missouri State Fair continues to thrive!

Everyone who volunteers will receive a free admission ticket and parking pass. Volunteering is a great way to make a difference AND enjoy a free day at the Fair.

Organizations (businesses & civic clubs) are strongly encouraged to volunteer as a group. If you volunteer as a group, you will have the opportunity to promote your organization, build your team spirit, and reward your employees/members with a free day at the Fair! Call for more information on how to register your group as a volunteer organization.
