The Minnesota State Fair is looking to hire a LOT of employees, which means YOU could get paid to head to the fair this year!

The Minnesota State Fair has consistently been rated one of the best state fairs in the country (duh, right?) And before the pandemic canceled the 2020 version, the fair had been setting daily attendance records for the past few years, as well. And after a smaller Fair in 2021, crowds definitely came back to the Fairgrounds in Falcon Heights last year.

So it's not a surprise that keeping the fair itself up and running takes a lot of workers each year. About 1,900 of them, to be exact. That's the number of employees the Great Minnesota Get-Together is looking to hire for its 2023 run. And, seeing as the fair this year kicks off on Thursday, August 24th, (and runs through Labor Day, September 4th) that means fair officials now have less than 60 days to do it.

According to the State Fair website, the Fair is looking for several different types of employees: Full-time employment (year-round), Summer jobs and internships (May-September), and Post-Fair Clean-Up (September and October.) Here's how the Fair describes its working environment:

Working at the Minnesota State Fair is an opportunity to be part of welcoming guests to celebrate the best Minnesota has to offer in our state’s most storied end-of-summer tradition. Benefits include free fair admission, valuable work experience, making great friends and so much more.

There are openings right now for a Coliseum Facilities Assistant in St. Paul, an Employment Services Assistant in St. Paul, as well as a part-time State Fair Police Officer and State Fair Reserve Officer.
