Volunteer at The Fair

Established in 1850, the Erin Fair has become a Thanksgiving Weekend tradition. A tradition of giving back, a tradition of community building, a tradition of learning new skills, and a tradition in having fun and working side by side with our neighbours by being a Volunteer. The Erin Fair is run by a great team of people – all Volunteers, who work throughout the entire year to plan and build a great event, and then, “Give ‘Er” on Fair Weekend to host one of the best country Fairs in Ontario!

Since 1850, families, individuals, organizations and businesses have pulled together – like those great heavy horse teams, to do the impossible, and to launch a great big party for over 25,000 visitors, locally and from the GTA. Adults, students, seniors, local churches, service groups, and kids all pitch in at a variety of levels. Volunteers make it happen, from helping to prepare the Fairgrounds, set up of tents, displays, and making apple dumplings for the entire Fair weekend.

Busy with family on Fair Weekend? If so, we ALWAYS need more hands beforehand and afterwards on Fair Tuesday – because a big party, requires lots of set up and a big clean up!
