Volunteer Opportunities

Minnesota State Fair

Volunteer for MSHS at the Minnesota State Fair (Aug. 23 - Sept. 3) and get FREE admission to the great Minnesota get-together the day you volunteer! It's always fun hanging out together, people-watching and talking to fair-goers. Help us out for four hours and enjoy the rest of the day exploring the fair.

To volunteer at the Minnesota State Fair, please sign up HERE.
