The Oklahoma State Fair, ranked among the top State Fairs in North America and often referred to as “Oklahoma’s Premier Family Attraction,” is rich in history and heritage. Part of that heritage is the Oklahoma State Fair Volunteer Program.
Volunteer Members are critical for the successful operation of the Fair each year. Their faithful service is the backbone of the Fair and without them, it would not be possible to provide the level of hospitality, educational programs and children’s services to our guests that Oklahoma State Fair is known for. The services provided by Oklahoma State Fair Volunteers ensure that our Fair is one of the biggest and best in the country!
Oklahoma State Fair volunteers provide support during the Fair, the move-in days prior to and move-out days after the Fair. Each volunteer shift will be 3 to 4 hours long.
One mandatory training session is required for all new volunteers each year. During the training session, volunteers will receive the Fair “411” and their FREE Oklahoma State Fair Volunteer t-shirt to wear while volunteering at the Fair.
**New policy - Volunteers are required to fulfill a commitment of at least 16 hours during the Fair **
