Employment and Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer for the Annual Craftsmen’s Fair!

The annual Craftsmen’s Fair at the Mount Sunapee Resort in Newbury, NH, is our biggest event of the year attracting more than 24,000 visitors, and we need dozens and dozens of volunteers to help it run smoothly and efficiently.

We are now ready to begin accepting volunteers for the 86th Annual Fair, August 3-11, 2019.  You may choose the Volunteer Opportunities and time slots that most interest you. There are event volunteer jobs to assist with children’s activities, help with demonstrations, hand out surveys, assist in the Membership/Information Tent, and provide breaks for the craftspeople in their booths.

Volunteers receive Free Admission on the day they volunteer, a one-day Guest Pass to use another day or pass on to a friend, and a Free Fair T-shirt when they volunteer a full day or full day equivalent. Best of all, volunteers return home at the end of the day knowing that their efforts contributed to the success of the League’s premiere event.

AFTER JULY 17, WE WILL BE ASKING FOR A PHONE CALL TO HQ WHEN VOLUNTEERING SO THAT WE MAY PLACE YOU WHERE NEEDED TO FILL OUT THE SCHEDULE.

You may submit an online volunteer application HERE.
You may download a PDF of our volunteer application HERE and mail it to our Headquarters.
