Community Volunteers Needed

Looking for a great way to get involved in your community, while having fun!! The Prince George's County Fair Board is grateful to all community members who volunteer their time to help with the Fair in September. We couldn't do it without you!!

While our volunteers contribute their time for a variety of reasons, all are important members of the County Fair Team. Every volunteer is a County Fair Ambassador - YOU help represent the Fair to the public.

ABOUT THE SCHEDULE: The Fair runs from Thursday, September 7th through Sunday, September 10th. We need volunteers each of those days. But we also start setting up on Monday, September 4th. So, volunteers are welcomed from Monday through Sunday. To make sure that we can schedule all volunteers, please e-mail us by August 25th with the times you'd like to volunteer. After that date, call the Fair Office at 301-404-5566. We ask that you volunteer a minimum of 4 hours if possible. (Note: If you are a student in school, you will not be allowed to volunteer during school hours.) 

Shifts are as follows: 9:00AM - 1:00PM, 1:00PM - 5:00PM, 5:00PM - 9:00PM (But we're flexible, and you are welcome to start and finish at different times.) 

    ABOUT YOUR ASSIGNMENT: Typical volunteer activities include setting up displays, monitoring displays, caring for livestock, setting up for outdoor events, setting up for indoor events, answering phones in the office, gate duty, etc.

    ABOUT YOUR DAY AS A VOLUNTEER: For your convenience there are bathrooms near the Fair Office. Also, cold drinks & light refreshments are available for Fair Staff & Volunteers only. Inquire at the Fair Office.

    MOST IMPORTANTLY: Have fun & Enjoy Yourself!!

    Prince George's County Fair...                ...The Oldest Running Maryland Fair

    The Prince George's County Fair began in 1842 as a friendly gathering for local farmers to showcase their produce and livestock and have a little fun. We have the distinction of being the oldest running Fair in Maryland!

    Though it started out as mostly livestock and field crops, eventually it came to include women's arts as well, with competitions for the best jams, jellies, canned goods, pies, breads, cookies, clothing, quilts, and handicrafts. It was (and is) quite an honor to be deemed the best in the County!

    Did you know we still hold competitions in all these areas, plus photography, fine-arts, woodworking, basket making, flower arranging, and more? The Open Class area accepts entries from any of the 5 Southern Maryland Counties and also from our District of Columbia neighbors. There's no charge to enter your work, and the top three winners in each class receive a ribbon and a small monetary award. For more information on specific entry areas, check out the Open Class Entries link located at the top!

    In addition to the competitions in Open Class and 4-H, the Fair is lots of fun! This year we will be having a carnival with many rides and more games for both younger and older Fair goers. For an idea of what you can expect to see at the Fair, check out the Schedule and Entertainment links.

    The Fair has seen its share of difficulties and has sometimes struggled to survive. This is where you come in -- the Fair simply cannot do without you! We need you to come visit, bring your family and friends, have a good time, maybe enter something in the Open Class competition, and most importantly come back year after year! We are also looking for volunteers to help during the Fair - go to the Volunteer To Help link. If you are really interested, you could even join the Fair Association as a board member - go to the Join The Fair Board link to see how!
