When you head to the Minnesota State Fair, you usually spend money, right? Well, here's a way for you to MAKE money at the Great Minnesota Get-Together this year.

Minnesota State Fair

The Minnesota State Fair is looking to fill over 600 positions at this year's event-- and yeah, they'll pay you!

Okay, it's not quite the same as just hanging out at the Fair and devouring another Pronto Pup or porkchop on a stick, but if you're looking to make a little extra money this summer, a job at the State Fair might be for you.

And, they're actually holding a State Fair Job Fair to fill some of those positions. It's happening this Wednesday at the Progress Center on the State Fairgrounds up in Falcon Heights. The State Fair website says shifts at the fair typically run between 6 to 12 hours a day, and usually pay between $9 and $10.

They're looking to fill positions including:

  • Ticket Selling
  • Ticket Taking
  • Parking
  • Retail sales
  • Food service
  • Games
  • Sanitation

You have to be at least 16 and be able to work all 12 days of the Fair this year (which runs August 24th through September 4th). If you're interested, you can get more information on this week's job fair HERE.
