State Fair FAQ
How do I get to the fairgrounds?
Remember: getting to the fair takes time. Getting to the Education booth takes even more time, so please allow for all travel, and plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before your shift begins.

Why do you need my mailing address?
We mail a packet, including an entry ticket, a t-shirt and other materials, to volunteers who are away from campus for the summer or don’t have a UST mailbox.
What if I have problems using the online registration process?
Contact University Relations: (651) 962-6400 or StateFairVol@stthomas.edu.
Why do Labor Day shifts have orange text on the calendar page?
If you register for a shift during Labor Day weekend (Friday noon-Monday night), you receive one extra State Fair admission ticket.
What should I wear to my shift(s) at the fair?
We are providing a State Fair volunteer t-shirt again this year. Other than that, please wear something that is comfortable - black or khaki pants or shorts. Wear comfortable shoes - you will be moving around the booth.
