Help us “GROW” by volunteering at the 2013 Tennessee State Fair!
The best part of volunteering is the feeling you get from knowing you’ve helped a worthy endeavor come to pass. At the Tennessee State Fair, you’ll know you’ve played a part in your state’s history – a history that includes 107 years of crops, community, and friendly competition. You’ll know you’ve helped bring fellow Tennesseans the very latest information and technology so they can use it to enrich and improve their lives – and catch a ride on a Ferris Wheel too!
At the Tennessee State Fair, volunteers get more than a feeling! Below are the 2013 Tennessee State Fair Volunteer Benefits.
