It’s Time for The Fair and Time to Get a Job
Celebrating Together Again. That's the theme to this year's Central Washington State Fair set for September 24-October 3.
IT'S TIME FOR A FAIR JOB FAIR ON JULY 28
The fair will need lots of workers this year and with some 70 days left before the fair starts fair officials are holding a job fair. Fair officials say people will be hired on the spot during a job fair set for Wednesday, July 28 from 11:00AM to 7:00PM in the Modern Living Building at Yakima's State Fair Park located at 1301 South Fair Avenue. Job seekers enter the job fair through Gate 5.
THOSE 16-YEARS-OLD AND OLDER CAN APPLY FOR A FULL OR PART TIME JOB
Kathy Kramer, President, and CEO of Central Washington Fair Association says "attracting seasonal staff is essential in bringing the annual Fair to the community. We have opened employment opportunities this year to include 16 years and older. The Fair is a great first job for gaining work experience for our youth and we hope to see lots of them at our upcoming job fair.”

She says flexible schedules will be available for full, part-time and weekends during all ten days of the fair. A press release says "seasonal staff positions will be eligible for free Fair tickets, prize drawings, and a completion bonus. Pre-fair work is also available."
