Volunteer at the Harvest Fair!


The Harvest Fair wouldn’t be the time-honored tradition it is today without the support of incredible volunteers year after year. Grab a friend and sign up together! All volunteers receive free admission to the fair and a volunteer t-shirt.

Need community service hours? This is the most fun way to get them!
