Volunteer Opportunities

Participate in a Texas tradition. Volunteer today.

The State Fair livestock department has several volunteer committees that play an integral part in the success of the annual event. The volunteer committees are always looking for new members and there are numerous ways to help both during the Fair and year-round.

Our committees offer rewarding outcomes and networking opportunities for individuals interested in the ongoing fortification of the State Fair’s scholarship program.

The State Fair of Texas Youth Scholarship Program is open to eligible high school seniors who participate in State Fair livestock shows and to outstanding students attending the following Fair Park-area high schools: Lincoln, James Madison, North Dallas, Woodrow Wilson and the Irma L. Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School.

For more information or to apply for a volunteer committee position, contact the State Fair livestock office at 214-421-8723 or by email at auction@bigtex.com.
