Volunteer

Participate in a Texas tradition.

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.

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.
