State Fair Food Allergy Booth

August 22nd through Labor Day (September 2nd, 2019) - Our 13th year at the fair!

AFAA is grateful to Health Fair 11 for the opportunity to have a booth for the 13th year in a row at the Crossroads building on the corner of Dan Patch Avenue and Cooper Street.That's T-25 on your State Fair map.

Enjoy the "Great Minnesota Get-together" and educate thousands at the same time by handing out literature! Sign up now for any open 3 hour shift, and receive a free admission ticket for each day you sign up! Volunteers also receive a tee-shirt!

Most shifts require 4 volunteers (evenings only 2). Volunteers sign up online for one or more 3 hour shifts. Previous State Fair volunteers are eligible to be shift leaders. Shift Leaders train new volunteers, answer volunteers' questions, supervise shift changes, and substitute for absent volunteers in the event of an emergency. Shift Leaders are required to have previous volunteer experience at the AFAA State Fair booth and be on the fairgrounds & reachable two shifts (6 hours). Afternoon/Evening (3-8 pm) Shift Leaders must staff the booth from 6-8 pm.

Apply online to volunteer. Please include your mailing address so we can send you your ticket. Also, include your phone number (cell phone preferred) so we can contact you.

Most shifts need up to 4 volunteers. (See chart below for shift openings.) Due to a limited number of tickets, four volunteers will receive tickets for each shift (2 for evenings). Note: Children under five do not require a ticket. If your family or group of friends is larger than the number of remaining spots in the shift, consider splitting up between two shifts.

Please arrive at the AFAA booth 30 minutes before your shift starts to get settled in, receive your t-shirt, familiarize yourself with the booth and materials, get a beverage, use the bathroom, etc.

Previous State Fair AFAA Booth Volunteers are eligible to be Shift Leaders. Sign up here.

Available Volunteer Shifts:

Dark Green: need 4 volunteers (A whole family can sign up!);
Lighter Greens: need 1, 2 or 3 volunteers

Where is the Food Allergy Booth?

The Food Allergy Booth at HealthFair 11 is in the Crossroads Building on the corner of Dan Patch Avenue and Cooper Street. (Just 2 short blocks west of the Snelling Avenue Gate, one of the Park & Ride drop off/pick up locations.) T-25 on the State Fair map.

It is close to the Skyride, Bandshell (free shows!), Space Tower, Butterfly House, Kidway rides, and Creative Activities Building.

Remember, that's T-25 ("Crossroads Building/HealthFair 11") on your State Fair map.

* Because our supply of tickets is very limited, any volunteers beyond the maximum number per shift (4 for 9-noon, noon-3, and 3-6; 3 for 6-9) will be required to purchase their own ticket.
