We couldn’t do it without you

Did you know that the Capital Fair has been run mainly by volunteers since it’s inception?

We have volunteers all over the fairgrounds for the 10 days, and you can spot them in our lime green t-shirts.  In the kids tent playing around, at the community stage working with the performers and sound crew, or even coordinating and cooking lunch to keep our crew of volunteers nourished and energized!  We depend on our friendly volunteers in every corner of the fair and are forever thankful for the time they spend with us!

Even outside of the physical fair dates, all of the planning and organizing is done by our most seasoned volunteers (the ones you’ll see in the red “staff” shirts).  We are lucky to have such a wide range of skills in our midst.  From experienced project managers, detail oriented accountants, expert networkers, talented event coordinators, and outgoing social media gurus.  The best part is that many of our volunteers have joined us without these amazing skills, and without knowing how they could help out.  They joined us with the motivation to take part and the curiosity to learn about the fair!  All the rest came naturally, and we are just so grateful they have stuck with us over the years.

Without our green shirts and our red shirts, we wouldn’t be able to have a Fair.  So thank you to all!
