County Fair seeks superintendents; fine arts & photography

The San Juan County Fair is in need of superintendents to help manage the Fine Art and the Photography departments.

Superintendents serve on the front-line of volunteering and the position comes much appreciation and even a few Fair perks. Departments have a tough time accepting the entries of exhibitors without a superintendent to keep track of the submissions, Fair Manager Jennifer Allen said.

“This is getting to the critical point as the Fair is just four weeks away," Allen said. “This would be a great opportunity for an organization or group to take over these popular exhibits.”

Serving as department superintendent isn’t a solo act. You can also sign up to help out in any department during exhibitor entry day, take one shift or more during the Fair, or volunteer for exhibit pick-up day. To volunteer contact the Fair, 378-4310, or apply online at the Fair website, www.sjcfair.

Performers can apply online...The Fair is accepting applications online from performing artists of all types, ages and experience; musicians, dancers, hypnotists, magicians, puppeteers, jugglers, knife-throwers— well, maybe not knife-throwers—but you get the point (pun intended).

To showcase your talent, fill out an application online at, www.sjcfair.
