Volunteers are the Secret Ingredient to Fair’s Success
Generations of families have exhibited at the Lodi Agricultural Fair through the years. This strong family tradition and friends of the fair, keep our volunteer base growing, so the fair will be around for the next generations to enjoy. Today, the fair has an army of 400+ volunteers of all ages, who cut the lawn, help with repairs, building projects, set up and clean up, and volunteer during the fair. This group of dedicated people helps us to keep the costs down, so we have a fair free of gate fees, entry fees and stalling fees. At the Lodi Agricultural Fair, volunteers do make all the difference and we are truly grateful for each one of them. If you would like to become a volunteer, watch for our postings on our Lodi Ag Fair Facebook page, we announce jobs we need done during the weeks leading up to the fair, or please contact the fair at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 608-592-4499 a month before the fair. We would love to have you join us and our family of volunteers!
