These essential folks are what make many of our exhibits memorable and engaging. No expertise required – just a willingness to help your fellow fair fans make the most of their day! Most shifts are four hours, and we’ll show you what to do. Sign up solo or with a group! Each volunteer receives a FREE admission ticket to the fair for every four hours you volunteer!

Do you need to fulfill community service hours?

We offer 2-4 hour shifts and you can volunteer more than once throughout the week of the San Mateo County Fair! If you require a signature or a letter from the San Mateo County Fair, we will provide that for you after you have completed your hours. Be sure to keep in contact with our Volunteer Coordinator for such details.

Want to get free admission to the Fair?

As a way of saying ‘thank you’ to our volunteers, for every 4 hours you volunteer, we will give you one Fair admission ticket and parking ticket to return back so that you can enjoy all the festivities! Now you will get to know the San Mateo County Fair behind the scenes and as an attendee.

Are you free during the summer?

Fill your time by volunteering and interacting with our guests. Get your friends to help alongside with you! As one of the largest Community Celebrations on the peninsula, volunteer workers are an important part in helping to make the San Mateo County Fair a success.
