Fund Raising and Volunteer Opportunities

Are you looking for a way to earn money for your group, school club, athletic teams, youth groups, or know of any other non-for-profit group that you would like to donate to? You can even have fun when working! Our volunteers also get Free admission and parking!

Volunteer at the McHenry County Fair and earn money for a group that you choose. If you need to put in community service hours for your school you can volunteer and to do that too.
This year the McHenry County Fair begins Tuesday, August 2 at noon and ends Sunday August 7, 2022. We need volunteers 14 years or older to help sell or take tickets in our ticket booths. These are usually 4 hour shifts that start as early as 7 am and run through 9 pm. We will need some students to help with ticket scanning or usher capacity for our grandstand events as well.

We pay $10 per hour for each hour worked to a group, organization, or charity of your choice. Here is an example of a payout for last year’s fair. 8 students working 4.0 hours earned $320.00 for their organization.

We're using to organize our volunteers for the 2022 McHenry County Fair. As in the past, we are looking for people to take and sell tickets and grandstand ushers during the fair.

When you come to work you will designate what group you would like to donate to. After the fair we will write a check to each club, team or organization that has students and/or parents work during the fair.
