Like any volunteer organization we are always looking for more volunteers.  You don’t have to be a member to  volunteer,  but as the saying goes, membership does have its privileges so be sure to check out the membership link.  See the Committee list below to help you find a match between your interest and where you would like to help out.

Contact Martina Arth martina@ancasterfair.ca  to become part of our volunteer team.

Are you a Student that needs  volunteer hours?  Are you wanting to get involved in your community? Would you like to get some exercise without going to the Gym? We can help! Come and volunteer at the Ancaster Fairgrounds!  Join us at some of our work bees.

The Ancaster Agricultural Society is non-partisan.
