Volunteer at the Irish Fair of MN

Who can volunteer with the Irish Fair?

The Irish Fair is committed to creating an environment of inclusivity and diversity. We welcome volunteers of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. (We do prefer volunteers 16 and older due to the nature of some of the work but will work with families to see if there are good options for children younger than 16.)


Besides the warm fuzzy feeling of giving back to your community, being a volunteer with the Irish Fair of MN has its perks, which include:

  • free snazzy t-shirt
  • free non-alcoholic beverages and snacks
  • free weekend admission to the fair
  • free parking on the day(s) you volunteer
  • free beverage ticket that can be used for an alcoholic (or non-alcoholic) beverage (1 ticket per shift)
  • volunteer appreciation party after the fair


Entry into a drawing for a trip for two to Ireland, thanks to the generous donation of tickets from Aer Lingus. (One entry will be awarded for every shift completed.)


There are many types of opportunities available. We can help you find one that is best suited to your interests and abilities. Click on each position to read more about the position and to register for it.
Note: We request that all volunteers attend one session of Alcohol Awareness Training, regardless of their position, to ensure everyone knows the Fair's policy for handling guests who have had a little too much to drink. This training is MANDATORY for positions that serve alcohol or check IDs, identified in the position descriptions. Please plan on attending one session in person. Dates and times of training sessions for 2024 can be found here.
