Little Hands on the Farm Fundraising Opportunity

The Education Department at the Indiana State Fairgrounds is currently accepting registrations from groups to work at the Little Hands on the Farm pres. by Indiana529 exhibit during the 2024 Indiana State Fair!

Little Hands on the Farm pres. by Indiana529 is an interactive experience attracting over 20,000 child participants during the Fair each year. Throughout the experience, children engage in the agricultural process as a farmer would – harvesting crops and other commodities and doing chores on the farm. Upon completion of their tasks, children receive money for their work that they can use to buy food at the grocery store. The State Fair Education Department relies on the service of enthusiastic workers to interact with guests, run the different stations on the farm and restock supplies throughout the day.

The Details

Little Hands on the Farm pres. by Indiana529 is open from 9AM to 8PM daily. There are two 6-hour shifts available, 8:30AM-2:30PM and 2-8PM. Registered groups should provide 12-15 workers per shift. All workers should be at least 13 years of age, and will be provided descriptions of each area of the farm in advance and will be rotated to different areas throughout their shift.

Groups are encouraged to wear clothing branded for their organization, and signage recognizing the organization will be placed at the entrance to Little Hands on the Farm pres. by Indiana529. All groups will receive FREE admission and parking on their day of service.
