Get involved!

The Lebanon Area Fair Board would like to thank a very important group of people that make the Fair a success—our volunteers. Every year community-minded citizens work side by side with Fair Board members to bring Lebanon County a fair to be proud of. The hours are long and the work is hard, all done without pay and sometimes without a thank you. Please know your work does not go unnoticed or unappreciated.

Kitchen – Taking orders, flipping burgers, and serving soup are just a few of the tasks performed by kitchen volunteers at the Eatery and Outside Eatery.

Trash – With thousands of visitors on the grounds each night, the garbage cans overflow quickly. Help to keep the fairgrounds clean by removing waste.

Fair Manager’s Desk – Customer service headquarters during Fair week. Answer phones, oversee the scavenger hunt, provide directions and more as an experienced member of our Fair volunteer staff.

Gazebo Staff – Answer questions in the outdoor gazebo as an experienced member of our Fair volunteer staff.

Set up/Clean up – There are signs and banner to be hung and taken down, chairs and tables to place and remove, and lots of trash to be removed at the end of the week.

Entry Check In – Thousands of indoor exhibits are checked in during a very brief window of time on Friday evening and Saturday morning. We need help making sure that every exhibit gets to the right place prior to judging.

The trash collection crew is among the hardest working. Get your garbage in the cans, people!
