How to Apply for
The Junior Fair Board

Any young person, 13-21 years of age, in Putnam County, Tennessee is eligible to be on the Junior Fair Board. You must love fairs, have a desire to help others, be willing to attend meetings and work at the fair.


It is a time commitment when you join the Junior Fair Board. It takes time each month to attend meetings, and complete projects. The time commitment is less during the late fall and winter months. But come spring and summer things do pick up significantly.


You will be involved in the planning of the Putnam County Fair, and you will be asked to recommend program and entertainment ideas. During the fair you will work on fair committees, work in the fair information booth, assist in setting up for events, assist with taking entries, and managing all aspects of a community event involving almost 500 volunteers and over 68,000 people who attend the fair.

So, you are interested in being on the Junior Fair Board?
