The Association operates entirely on amazing volunteers who are passionate about Ontario’s agricultural history and without their tireless dedication we could not put on this incredible show. All of our tasks are organized and supervised by chairpersons, and some require additional volunteers throughout the show. The following is a list of some of the volunteer positions that need to be filled.
We require a 4-hour minimum commitment. With a 4-hour commitment we will offer you a meal voucher for use after your shift at the show. With an 8-hour commitment we will offer you 2 meal vouchers and breaks throughout the day. Please dress according to the weather – we are open to the public, rain, or shine. Some positions will have shade, some will not, so bring sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, etc. -- THIS IS AN OUTDOOR EVENT!!
