The applicant line will begin forming at 3 p.m. outside the Progress Center, and anyone in line by 7:45 p.m. will be able to participate.

Positions available at the Job Fair could include: ticket selling, ticket taking, parking and Park & Ride attendants, food service, rides & games, barn attendants, retail sales, custodians, public safety and more. Wages for most positions range from $9.86 to $11.00 per hour. If hired, employees will receive free State Fair admission. Job seekers are encouraged to register online before coming to the Job Fair in order to accelerate the process. For those who don’t register online, registration can be completed at the Job Fair.

Applicants must be at least 16 years old and available to work all 12 days of the fair, Aug. 22 - Labor Day, Sept. 2, 2019. Depending on the position, shifts are typically six to 12 hours long.
