Helping hands needed at county fair

Volunteers play a huge role in the success of the Marion County Fair and organizers are looking for more to participate in the upcoming event.

The annual fair will take place July 9-11, 2021, at the Oregon State Fairgrounds in Salem. 

Opportunities include helping fair visitors, manning the information booth, assisting with public competitions, and more. Volunteer shifts available each day from morning through evening hours.

It will be the first time since 2019 the fair has had live events and will bring back showcases of local 4-H and FFA programs, interactive attractions for fairgoers of all ages, public competitions, great food, music, carnival rides and more.
