The Indiana State Fair has been CANCELLED for the 2020 year.   We hope to see you at the fair next year!

About Indiana State Fair Ticket Sales

Volunteers are needed to work for the Indiana Lions Foundation as ticket sellers and ticket scanners at the Indiana State Fair, August 7th – 23rd in Indianapolis. This is the Foundation’s largest fundraiser and the proceeds are used to provide grants to Lions Clubs throughout the state of Indiana. If you haven’t worked at the Indiana State Fair in a while, you might be pleasantly surprised at the changes that have been implemented in recent years. Most jobs can be done while sitting and some are in air-conditioned ticket booths. The checkout process for tickets sellers has been streamlined.
