Online applications are now being accepted for the Fair’s “Junior Fairboard” volunteer program. The California Mid-State Fair Junior Fairboard consists of young people between 16 and 25 years of age living in San Luis Obispo County. Members assist with the day-to-day operations of the annual Fair, including events such as assisting in livestock and equestrian support, pageant set up, public judging, market research and any other duties/committees as assigned by Fair Staff, management, or Fair Board. In addition, members help in the livestock area during weigh in and auction day, act as ushers in the Main Grandstand, and scan tickets.

Junior Fairboard members receive a jacket/t-shirt (to be worn at all Main Grandstand events and all committee activities), a photo ID badge granting admission to the Fair, meal tickets redeemable at designated California Mid-State Fair food venders and one (1) free guest pass per night valid for Main Grandstand events (upon artist approval).

Applications are due by Friday, June 28, 2024 and can be found online HERE. Applicants will be interviewed and voted on by a committee comprised of Junior Fairboard officers and the Board of Directors Junior Fairboard Committee. If selected, members are required to attend all Junior Fairboard meetings, participate in at least one (1) committee, attend all committee meetings and events, as well as attend all Main Grandstand events as an usher.

The 2024 California Mid-State Fair runs July 17 through July 28 and this year’s theme is “Wide Open Spaces!”. Connect with us on Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok.
