The Meadow Event Park holds events throughout the year, and volunteer support is important. We welcome business, civic and school groups, as well as individuals. With opportunities to help foster agriculture education, scholarship programs, outdoor concerts and family-friendly events, volunteering at The Meadow offers something for everyone!
Volunteers commit to 5.5 hour shifts. Per shift, volunteers receive a one-day ticket, $5 meal voucher, parking pass and official State Fair lapel pin.
Additional incentives offered for two or more shifts.
These are a few of the opportunities for volunteers at the State Fair of Virginia, and there are always additional needs that arise. We appreciate your stewardship.
This friendly group greets fairgoers and assists them with finding attractions and amenities such as wheelchairs, restrooms and ATMs.
