Hundreds of seasonal jobs available for 2021 Indiana State Fair

The 12th annual Indiana State Fair Job Fair will be held Tuesday, May 25 from 4 – 6 p.m. at the Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center in the Agriculture/Horticulture Building, 1202 E. 38th Street, Indianapolis, 46205. During the event, candidates seeking a seasonal position with the 2021 Indiana State Fair can complete an application and be interviewed on-site.


This year’s 164th Indiana State Fair is seeking hundreds of seasonal employees for positions related to parking, gates, security, operations, tractor shuttles, and education. Several positions are ideal for college students, retirees, individuals with full-time jobs who want to earn extra money, and others.


“It’s always exciting to grow our team as we prepare to serve and entertain fairgoers,” said Mark Anderson, director of human resources, Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center. “Without seasonal employees, we simply couldn’t offer the best Fair in the country.”


Applicants are asked to bring a smile, a positive attitude and a copy of their resume - if they have one. All individuals attending the event will be required to wear a facial covering. Guests who do not have a mask will be provided one, free-of-charge.


If applicants are unable to attend the Job Fair, they are asked to visit the State Fairgrounds’ Employment Office, located inside the Fall Creek Parkway entrance/Gate 6 at the Public Safety Building, from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday - Friday.
