Committee Member

The Boulder County Fair, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is looking for volunteers to help plan and run our fair. We are looking for individuals and groups who would like to participate and become a part of an organization that has successfully hosted the Boulder County Fair for 151 years. Our success is due to the wonderful group of volunteers who help during the year with the planning stage, during the set-up and break-down of the fair, and during the fair itself. We have many committee member opportunities and we’re always looking for new volunteers.If you would like to serve or chair a committee please fill out below information.
