Volunteers

Douglas County Fair and Rodeo
August 2-5, 2018

Be a Vital Part of the 100 Year Celebration

Make a difference in 2018 and volunteer for the Douglas County Fair & Rodeo where you can serve your community, meet new people and have fun all at the same time! Without the vision, dedication and hard work of our wonderful volunteers, the Douglas County Fair & Rodeo would not be the well-run success that it is today.

All volunteers will receive a general admission pass for the entire fair, volunteer t-shirt, name badge, training and invitation to a special volunteer appreciation event on October 6.  There is also the added bonus of earning community service hours!

Volunteers may work in various functions depending on requirements and capabilities. Don’t worry; we set you up for success! Training is provided in advance so please sign up for one of the three training sessions.
