It is easy to get involved in this family-friendly event and have tons of fun! Individual and group volunteers are needed each year to help make the Fair a success. Volunteers receive a T-shirt, free parking and free admission to the Fair on the day(s) of their shift(s).

General Volunteers

Roles include Gate Ambassadors, Greeters, Mascots & Handlers, Photographers, and people to help in the Homestead and at Volunteer HQ. Most of these positions are outside and will keep you on your feet, but there are also some indoor and sit-down options.

Team Leaders

If you have worked the fair for three or more years, you qualify to be a Team Leader. If you are comfortable leading others please consider being a Team Leader. Team Leaders provide volunteers with instruction for their areas, answer questions, help with fair-goer issues and provide breaks as needed. You must commit to at least three volunteer shifts and attend a training before the Fair.

Volunteer Groups

Small groups (5-10 people) are needed before, during and after the Fair for a variety of projects. Tasks range from grounds work to prepare the Fairgrounds, assisting 4-H in animal competition set-ups, Gate Ambassadors during the Fair, and clean-up afterwards.

For more information about general, team leader or group opportunities please contact Volunteer Coordinator Nira Duvan, at nduvan@arapahoegov.com or 303-738-7938.

Best In Show Volunteers

Best In Show (formally known as Open Class) - Public Competition Exhibits provide a unique opportunity for members of the community to show off their talents in gardening, arts & crafts and baking. Best In Show volunteers assist with the entry process, help judges or display exhibits. Volunteers will attend an orientation before the fair. Many Best In Show shifts occur before the Fair is open to the public.
