GFWC Virginia State Fair Tours
The Virginia State Fair is located in its permanent home at The Meadow Event Park, in Doswell, Virginia (near King’s Dominion). GFWC Virginia clubwomen are again needed to serve as volunteers for the Educational Exposition and our volunteer dates for the 2014 State Fair are September 26, 29, 30, October 1, 2, and 3.
We need a total of 15 to 20 volunteers each day. We will greet buses and supervise holding areas. Volunteers need to arrive by 9:00 AM and will be dismissed about noon. You may spend the rest of the day at the Fair. Registration is available online or you may email Linda Holsclaw or call at (804) 672-3822. The deadline to register is September 19, 2014.
All volunteers receive free admission to the Fair and free parking on the day that they volunteer. Family and friends may volunteer with you and their admission and parking are free on that day as well. If you would like to volunteer on more than one day, we welcome your additional participation. Each volunteer will be mailed an information packet, and on the day that you volunteer, you will receive a special commemorative State Fair pin!
