Volunteer at the Fair!

The New Mexico State Fair is the biggest show in New Mexico, but it can’t go off without your help. Volunteers are needed every day to help make our fair one of the best in the country. If you volunteer, you will receive free admission to the fair the day of your shift.

To apply please fill out the volunteer application and waiver which can be found below. We will contact you once we receive your application.

Thank you for your participation in making the New Mexico State Fair a wonderful experience for all!
Thank you to everyone who volunteered this year at the fair! Due to an overwhelming amount of responses, volunteer registration is now closed!
