The Chilliwack Fair is an annual staple of the Chilliwack summertime events calendar, and it couldn’t happen without you.

While the fair isn’t due until August, the Chilliwack and District Agricultural Society (CDAS) is looking for help now; the fair is completely volunteer-run, and organizers are looking for help with everything from display set-up to animal pen freshening.

The fair runs at Heritage Park from August 8 to 10, and volunteers can sign up for shifts whenever suits their schedule. A commitment of four hours or more earns volunteers a one-day gate pass to the fair, as well as a spot at the volunteer appreciation barbecue.

The fair can find a spot for just about anyone to help out, whether you have a passion for setting up signage or a find yourself in a fervour at the prospect of showing vendors where to set up booths.

• More information is available under the volunteer tab at www.chilliwackfair.com, or by calling CDAS at 604-824-8191.
