Visit our State Fair booth

statefair16-(1).jpgThe 2017 Minnesota State Fair returns Aug. 24-Sept. 4!

Every year, Education Minnesota member volunteers and staff produce personalized photo calendars for visitors at our booth in the Education Building on Cosgrove Street near the Snelling Avenue entrance.

All shifts have been filled, but if you would like to be notified of a cancellation, contact Ashley Behrens.

The booth is open from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Shifts include taking digital photos and acting as Education Minnesota ambassadors to fairgoers. In 2016, members produced more than 14,000 calendars for booth visitors.

Shifts are three hours long; volunteers receive an admission ticket and T-shirt.

In addition to the photo calendar, the booth also features a different education group every day of the fair showcasing their curriculum area or program. See some of the photos we took last year!
