Published on: July 10, 2023
With the Kentucky State Fair just over one month away, the event announced open job interviews to fill hundreds of positions with responsibilities ranging from guest services to operations.
Starting Tuesday, July 11th, and every Tuesday and Thursday remaining in July at Broadbent Arena, Kentucky Venues will invite applicants to explore over a dozen roles needed for the Kentucky State Fair. Applicants will be offered on-the-spot interviews and positions. Interviews will take place from 10 a.m. through 7 p.m. Applicants can also visit the state fair website at https://kystatefair.org/join-our-team/ and apply by August 3. Applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis.
“We work year-round to make sure every aspect of the Kentucky State Fair is the best it can be,” said David S. Beck, President & CEO of Kentucky Venues, which produces the fair. “It’s no secret that our success relies heavily on our team, which is why we take time to find the right people to enhance the guest experience and enjoyment of the fair.”
The fair will hire temporary positions in multiple areas, including Access Control/Gates, Guest Services, Operations, and Traffic Control. Positions range in pay from $12.05 to $13.50 per hour with opportunity for overtime pay. No experience is necessary, but applicants must be at least 18 years old, able to stand for long periods inside or outside, and able to work around crowds.
Interested applicants should enter the Kentucky Exposition Center through Gate 4 and park in Lot J. There will be signs outside Broadbent Arena directing applicants. Applicants need two forms of identification: one with a photo and a social security card. They should also bring their bank routing and account numbers for direct deposit or a voided check.
