The Great New York State Fair is Looking to Fill Hundreds of Job Positions


Yes, it is still only the month of May, but organizers for the Great New York State Fair are already looking to fill hundreds of positions for the 13 day fair at the end of August. The Great New York State Fair will begin on Wednesday, August 21 and run through Labor, Monday September 2nd.

Job positions available at the Fair include work in agriculture buildings, guest relations representatives, ticket takers, safety and security guards, tram conductors and drivers, and a whole lot more.

“Each year, we’re so grateful to have several hundred community members step up to help our team throw one of the biggest events in New York State,” said Interim Fair Director Julie LaFave. “From staffing the Great Potato Booth and answering visitors’ questions in Guest Relations to security and tram driver roles, there’s no way it would all come together without these incredibly important roles. Our staff’s hard work and dedication is a huge part of what makes The Fair a success year-in and year-out.”

The State Fair says work hours, rate of pay and duration of the employment will vary depending on the position with some may require a start date before the start of the fair. Those interested in viewing open positions and to apply can visit the The Great New York State Fair website found HERE.
