The Minnesota State Fair is now hiring.
Fair departments and vendors are looking to bring in more than 1,000 workers for the 2021 Get-Together, which runs Aug. 26 through Labor Day (Sept. 6), the State Fair announced Wednesday. Anyone interested can begin applying now, either online or at the Employment Center on the fairgrounds.
Open positions include:
- Ticketing (including ticket selling and ticket taking)
- Parking and Park & Ride attendants
- Public safety employees
- Food service
- Rides and games
- Barn attendants
- Retail sales
The jobs are open to anyone age 16 and older. The pay is variable, according to the State Fair's employment FAQ, with individual vendors and departments setting their own rates. But the minimum is $10.08 an hour.
Fair workers, as you might expect, get free fair admission.
