Be A Fair Leader

If you subscribe to our State of the Fair newsletter, you already know that DC State Fair is gung-ho for the third-ever DC State Fair! And we want you to be a part of continuing this new DC tradition.

DC State Fair is run completely by the most dedicated and amazing volunteers in the District, and you can be one of those amazing volunteers, too! DC State Fair has plenty of opportunities for you to take an active role planning the Fair this fall by joining a committee and organizing contests, coordinating events, reaching out to the community, and more! If you, or a friend, or a trusted companion, or a coworker, or (you get the idea) are interested in taking on a leadership role with DC State Fair, e-mail kenneth@thedcstatefair.org for more details.

Events Committee: This committee will help coordinate events, such as info booths at farmers’ markets, special events, and the day of the Fair itself.

Community Engagement Committee: This committee will be responsible for reaching out to other community groups to spread word about contests and events as well as hitting the ground to engage community members who may have interest in participating with the Fair. Anyone with an interest in interviewing previous contestants and writing profiles and recipe posts for the blog and newsletter are particularly welcome!

Contests Committee: This committee will be composed of subcommittees. Each subcommittee will work to determine contests, set judging parameters, find judges, reach out to the community to inform potential contestants, and work to acquire prizes for each contest, plus play a coordinating role during the day of the Fair when the contests are to be held.
Subcommittees:

  • Vegetable Contests Subcommittee: coordinate rules, schedule, and types of contests to be run. The people on this committee should have some experience gardening, at least.
