Employment Opportunities

The Sonoma County Fair dates are August 2 - 12, 2018.
Employment Application

If you are interested in a job at the Fairgrounds and can commit to the two weeks, obtain a job application at the fairgrounds administration office or online. You will be given the opportunity to specify which job you prefer. Be sure you list all the jobs you are interested in, by using the number system, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc., because you may not get your first choice. If a Manager is interested in your application, you will be called for an interview. Please bring documents that prove both your identity and your authorization to work in the U.S. to the interview. KEEP A COPY OF YOUR CHOICES for future reference. Employment applications are only accepted from people who are 16 years or older with a valid work permit (if required).

If you do not get called to work for the Fair, you may be able to work for a concessionaire (food booth) or for the Carnival. Come to the fairgrounds a day or two before the Fair starts and ask at the various food stands. Some are from out of the area and hire local help for the run of the Fair. The carnival hires local workers and traditionally begins hiring the week before the Fair opens. To apply for a job, go to the carnival lot and look for the hiring trailer.
