We welcome individuals and group volunteers to help at the 2024 Horse Expo!
We welcome your interest and hope that you will join us for our 2024 Minnesota Horse Expo! When you volunteer as an individual for a shift of 4 or more hours, you will receive Free Admission to the Horse Expo on the day you work.
Members signing up under a group, organization, or saddle club (does not need to be horse-related) can qualify for payment if the group volunteers for a minimum of 40 hours/10 shifts total over the Expo event. Payment is based upon 4-hour shifts, at a rate of $20 per shift. There is no minimum or maximum number of members who can volunteer as part of a group, or a maximum number of shifts per individual. Non-adult volunteers under 16 can also participate, but there must be one adult supervisor per two underage volunteers, and volunteers under 16 will only be positioned at the entrance gates to distribute and pack programs. It is requested that each group have a primary contact person to contact the Expo volunteer coordinator.
